Seniors learn health matters at one stop shop

March 15, 2006

Valdosta - Senior Citizens learned all they need to know about their health at a one stop shop Wednesday.

About 100 seniors turned out for Valdosta's annual Senior Health Fair. Vendors were on hand to offer information on everything from prescription drug plans, to nutrition and physical fitness.

Some gave important health screenings and others offered the seniors a relaxing massage. Seniors say its great to have a wide variety of information all under one roof.  "It's very helpful because its all at one hand, we don't have to go to different areas, its close here at the senior citizens center where we come daily and its just very convenient for us," said Emma Moody.

About 33 vendors took part in the fair Wednesday.
