To celebrate the baby boomer generation and beyond, Fauquier Hospital will hold a special Healthy Living Expo just for those 50 and older. Highlights will include a fitness exhibition featuring yoga, Tai Chi and Zumba Gold; cooking demonstrations; several seminars — including finding websites you can trust.
The festivities are 9 a.m. until 12 noon on Saturday, April 27, in the conference area of the hospital, upstairs from the Bistro.
Door prizes will be given away throughout the morning, including an iPad* and a grand prize fitness package that includes a three-month membership to the Fauquier Health Wellness Center, personal trainer sessions, a massage session and a consultation with a nutritionist. You must preregister to be eligible for larger prizes. Preregister by calling 540-316-3588.
FREE Health Screenings Include:
• Blood Pressure
• Senior Fitness Assessment
• Bone Density
• Varicose Vein and Leg Pain Screening
Almost two dozen community organizations serving seniors will be on hand as well. Attendees who bring a list of their medications can have a pharmacist review them for potential interactions. Bring your questions about Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Alzheimer’s, stroke, diabetes, COPD, congestive heart failure, fitness and nutrition, and physical therapy. Health system and community experts will be available to help.
* To be eligible to win the iPad, you must preregister, and you must be present to win.
