Seniors have special health needs. That's why Morton Plant North Bay Hospital launched the Senior Health Awareness Resources and Education (SHARE) program. For the third year in a row, the SHARE monthly seminar series will focus on preventative health care, wellness and safety, featuring topics interesting and relevant to seniors.
There is no cost to join SHARE and members will have opportunities to participate in presentations, question and answer sessions and interactive activities.
The Faith Community Nursing program will offer free blood pressure screenings prior to each seminar. Additional screenings will be offered throughout the series. Light refreshments will be served.
