AFSCME Free College: AFSCME members and their family can earn associate degrees online in several professional and academic disciplines from an accredited community college. All for free! This unique members-only program, offered through Eastern Gateway Community College, is designed for AFSCME members and their spouses, children, grandchildren, parents or siblings. Receive a high-quality education at no cost and earn an associate degree to achieve career goals. Learn more at the AFSCME Free College booth.  

Wellness Booth: Need a quick health check? AFSCME nurses and other health care members are on call at the Wellness Booth Saturday through Thursday. Nurses will check blood pressure and provide a diabetes risk assessment. Physical therapists and occupational therapists will be on hand to consult about motion problems, and to show you easy stretches to do anywhere. Pharmacists will be available to consult about medications, adherence and drug interactions. Plus, get important tips on nutrition, fitness and preventive health.

Note: Convention attendees needing emergency attention should pick up the “house” phones inside the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) to get EMS attention or dial 911.
