The Health Promotion Program teaches seniors how to become physically fit and prevent illness by improving their lifestyle. Subjects include stress management, physical fitness, good nutrition, medication use, coping with grief, and many other topics.
Most senior centers have available, exercise equipment to help with cardiovascular and strength training. Some of the centers have adjacent swimming pools. Walking programs and other outdoor activities are planned. Socializing with others is good for your health! Come join us!

Specialty clinics may be offered throughout the year including podiatry, skin cancer, glaucoma and hearing screening, flu and pneumonia shots. If further evaluation or treatment is indicated, referrals are made to health care professionals.
