Hosting the event is Evangelical Community Hospital, which has generously been sponsored by PPL Electric Utilities as the event sponsor and The Centurion Group as the event supporter.

This 24th annual event is the largest of its kind held for older adults. It is designed to provide an overview of resources available in the local community to keep older Americans healthy and fit. At the event will be representatives from many of the local organizations who offer a variety of services to older adults.

The morning will be filled with health-related activities consisting of three breakout sessions offered by Evangelical staff and local community members. Participants will have the opportunity to choose two sessions which will include a nutritional presentation on healthy eating for one or two, an interactive chair yoga fitness session, and a discussion on medication interactions and safety.

The event also features keynote speaker, Nichole Weber, Director of Patient Experience at Evangelical Community Hospital. Her session called "Be Part of Your Patient Experience," will address the role patient experience plays in today’s healthcare landscape.
