An upcoming expo aims to help people with disabilities live more independent lives.

The Celebrate Independence Expo, scheduled for July 25 and 26, will feature several exhibits, performances and health screenings that are geared toward helping those with disabilities live more self-sufficient lives.

The expo, which is hosted by The Independence Center, will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center, 3655 N. Nevada Ave.

It will begin with a job fair involving 37 employers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 25.

Several health screenings, including cardiac and stroke assessments, will also take place, though they may vary from day to day. In addition, nonprofits geared toward the treatment of mental illness, including the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will be in attendance.
