Successful Aging Fair is March 18 Eight different USD health programs are working together to provide health screenings and information at a Healthy Living and Successful Aging Fair at Trinity Lutheran Church in Vermillion on Thursday, March 18 from 9:30 to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The programs providing services are audiology, dental hygiene, health administration and law, nutrition, physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy. All services are free and can help people of any age to age successfully and with good health.
Booths will provide screenings, such as vision, hearing, glucose and dental checks, as well as free health literature. Local health and senior groups will also be there, sharing information about themselves. Sunday School rooms will be used for sessions such as a law professor presenting a report on Medicare changes and rights of seniors, memory sharing groups for anyone bringing old photos, and an exercise demonstration for those with limitations. A free toothbrush exchange will take place, with new toothbrushes for all who bring in their old ones.
Any questions call Professor Janet Buelow at 677-5690
