For the fifth consecutive year, the Ohio Department of Aging is partnering with the Ohio State Fair to sponsor the Well Beyond 60! EXPO on the Fair’s Senior Day, July 30, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The EXPO is an interactive health and wellness fair that features nearly 3,000 square feet of health screenings, wellness demonstrations, and more provided at no cost by state and community partners. The EXPO is located in the fairgrounds’ Central Park area and is free to fairgoers with paid fair admission. Visitors age 60 and older enjoy $4 admission on Senior Day.
Well Beyond 60! EXPO services include computerized balance screening, falls risk assessments, vision screening, kidney health assessments, blood pressure screenings, long-term care consumer advice, medication safety education, nutrition demonstrations, home adaptations, diabetes education, driver safety resources, and more.
The Department of Aging will also conduct a falls prevention mini-workshop prior to the day’s free Senior Day Concert at 1 p.m. in the Celeste Center, “A John Denver Tribute featuring Ted Vigil.”
