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.

Her session called "Be Part of Your Patient Experience," will address the role patient experience plays in today’s healthcare landscape.
