The free event is drive-through format and individuals are invited to attend to receive a bag filled with health and wellness literature and information that relates to adults ages 55 and beyond. The bag will also include giveaway items generously donated by local organizations and businesses. The first 100 attendees will receive a free umbrella.

Attendees should arrive by vehicle at The Miller Center main entrance facing Giant. Directional signs will guide participants to the bag pick-up area. Virtual education programs will be made available throughout the day at www.evanhospital.com.

  • The Importance of Staying Active will be presented by Janice Leeser, a Certified Personal Trainer at the Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center. The presentation will stress the need to continue movement in life as a “use it or lose it” ability. Leeser will demonstrate simple techniques that can be used anywhere, anytime to add productive movement to daily activities.
  • Janine Fee, MS, MPT, Physical Therapist at Evangelical Community Hospital will present “Are You Feeling Off Balance?" The presentation will explore the human balance system and how a disturbance in that system can impact daily living.
