Forsyth County Senior Services will offer seniors an opportunity to receive important health information at the Healthy Aging and Fitness Fair on Tuesday, July 24. The free event is for adults ages 50+ and will be held at the Sexton Hall Enrichment Center from 10 a.m. to noon.

Attendees can enjoy free fruit and take advantage of free health screenings, wellness information and exercise demonstrations.

“We are very excited to offer this event for our community’s seniors,” Senior Services Interim Director Valerie Rhoads said. “Attendees will be able to obtain a variety of wellness information and also get important health screenings.”

Health screenings will take place in the Main Hall and Game Room of the Sexton Hall Enrichment Center. The screenings will check an individual’s balance, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol, hearing, vitamin D and vision. Exercise demonstrations will include chair yoga, Tai Chi, ballroom dancing and total body conditioning.
