Senior health expo happening Wednesday

Adults age 50 and older can get a host of free health screenings, demonstrations and tips on leading a healthy lifestyle Wednesday during the Senior Health, Wellness & Fitness Expo.

The event is free and takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Donal M. Snyder Sr. Community Center, 2520 Pass Road.

“This a way for the city to continue to promote health and fitness to our growing senior population,” Biloxi Parks & Recreation Director Cheryl Bell said.¬† “We have seen the need for more senior health and fitness information and programs and have seen increased participation in our exercise classes.”

Activities include health screenings for body mass index, back and eyes, information booths, healthy morning snacks, door prizes, and more. Some screening will require fasting.

The expo is sponsored by the City of Biloxi, The Links, Incorporated, PRN Home Care, and Southern Hearts Hospice.

Added Bell: “Myriad organizations will be on site to assist seniors in various ways and seniors will be able to obtain a wealth of information that can assist them in the future.”
