People over the age of 50 can get a preview of the Fish Creek YMCA at the Senior Health and Wellness Day on May 16th. Beginning at 8 am, the event will offer two classes geared towards older individuals and four presentations on various health topics given by local doctors. Participants can pre-register for cholesterol and skin cancer screenings as well as sign up for chair massages and blood pressure readings at the event. Megan Schneider, the Adult Program Director at the Northern Door Program Center, says the program will allow seniors to see all the options designed for them at the Y.
Schneider adds that it is a free event, but asks those planning to come to call ahead of time to register so they can have accurate numbers for lunch. Participants can also arrange free transportation through the YMCA.
