WKBN and WYFX, Northside Medical Center and other Valley businesses teamed up to present Senior Day at the Southern Park Mall.
The free event was held Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the JCPenney concourse.
Hospital staffers provided free health screenings including stroke assessment, blood pressure, cholesterol and osteoporosis checks. There also was exercise classes, musical entertainment and hands-on activities.
“You know, we’re all gonna be seniors someday, and we really are just happy to bring a community event that brings everyone closer together, celebrating being a senior and giving them valuable resources and information, so they can continue on a lifestyle that’s comfortable and happy,” said event coordinator Debra Grim.
More than 35 senior-related exhibitors were there to give information to anyone with questions.
