On Monday, October 21, 2013, the City held its Second Annual Senior Health Fair. This year the event was bigger and better than last year in which we hosted more resourceful companies with senior services and even more seniors to take advantage of said resources. We invited seniors from the City of Miramar Senior Center, the City of Hollywood Senior Center, and our very own City of West Park Senior Program. In all, over 80 seniors took advantage of great information being presented from the following event partners: Broward Community and Family Health Center, Dr. Ted Berger’s Action Chiropractic, Community Blood Center, Holy Cross Blood-Mobile, Broward Sheriff Office – Fire Rescue & Police Departments, Broward County Transportation Department, Well-Care Health Plans, Safe Mobility, Broward County Appraiser’s Office, Humana, Healthy Hallandale, Florida Health Care Plus, Esther’s Home Health Service, AARP, and Broward County Family Success Center. A heart felt thank you goes to all of the groups that helped us make this event possible. We would also like to send out a special thanks to Ms. Walta Tolbert from Federica Wilson’s Office, Mr. Debon Campbell and Ms. Alexis Moseley from State Representative Shevrin Jones Office, Broward County Vice Mayor Barbara Sharief and the City Commission for attending the event and for sharing their time with area residents. All seniors in attendance went home with valuable information and useful give-a-ways relevant to their health and over all wellbeing.
