Senior Health Day held in Youngstown

Senior health day

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Senior health was on display at Fellows Riverside Gardens at Mill Creek MetroParks on Wednesday during the Senior Health Day sponsored by ValleyCare Health System.

Attendees received free information on health care and home services available in the Mahoning Valley. The event featured health screenings for cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure.

This year, a special “diabetes academy” seminar gave attendees important information on managing the disease.

“This event has been going on for many years throughout the Valley actually and our most recent home was at the Southern Park Mall. We have now moved the event here in the Fellows Riverside Gardens in the beautiful Davis Education Center. We have the opportunity to do seminars here that we could not typically do,” event coordinator Debra Grim said.

WKBN was a media partner for the event.
