Chapel Ridge to host 10th annual Senior Health and Wellness Fair

Julie Heary, a registered nurse with Penn Highlands Community Nursing, provides blood oxygen and blood sugar screening for a woman during 2018’s ninth annual Health and Wellness Fair at the Chapel Ridge assisted living facility on St. Francis Drive in Bradford. The 2019 event will be held Wednesday.

Seniors are invited to attend Chapel Ridge’s 10th annual Senior Health and Wellness Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at Chapel Ridge Personal Care Home, located at 200 St. Francis Drive, Bradford.

Statistics show that seniors who are well-informed about potential health issues can control them and live a longer, healthier life, according to event organizers.

Chapel Ridge, located on the campus of Bradford Ecumenical Home Inc. will once again partner with the United Way of the Bradford Area Inc. to provide this free event to members of the community.

Over 40 local health-related organizations and businesses will participate in the event by providing educational information on various health topics. Some of the screenings and information that will be available include vascular screenings by Allegheny Vein and Vascular and exercise examples shown by the BRMC SMART Clinic and Genesis Rehabilitation Services.

C.A. Curtze Co. will provide light refreshments to participants throughout the day.

This event is free and open to the public. It is not necessary to pre-register.
