Wednesday, September 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Milton & Betty Katz JCC and the Greater Atlantic City Chamber Senior & Active Adult Expo has become the largest active adult health and wellness exhibit in New Jersey. Its focus on lifestyle and active aging for baby boomers and seniors has reached more than 3,000 adults, seniors and caregivers each year in its eight-year history.
Thousands of area residents will attend this lifestyle, health and active aging expo for baby boomers and seniors for health screenings, presentations by area providers, flu shots and fitness classes. The event brings together more than 50 vendors, a five-part speaker series, interactive demonstrations and a morning speaker panel.
“The annual Senior and Active Adult Expo is targeted to the 50+ adult who wants to gather information about living a healthy active lifestyle,” Chief Operating Officer of the Katz JCC Marg Mancuso said. “The event is not only informative but fun as well.”
The morning speaker panel will offer a free continental breakfast at 10:30 a.m. and provide guests an opportunity to ask the panel of professionals questions on the chosen topic.
“We are excited to add another health-related component to the Senior & Active Adult Expo,” Mancuso said. “The addition of a medical professional speaker panel last year was so successful that we want to continue this component of the expo and this year we have been able to bring together some of the top medical professionals in our area to help baby boomers and seniors make important health and lifestyle decisions”
Free shuttles sponsored by the Atlantic County Department of Intergenerational Services will be available from the Shore Mall in Egg Harbor Township, as well as 55 and older communities in Longport, Margate, Ventnor and Atlantic City beginning at 10:00 a.m. and operating every 30 minutes.
Special caregivers are encouraged to attend.
“We recognize the dedication and involvement of special caregivers in this growing segment of the Atlantic County population,” Mancuso said. “Whether you are a concerned relative, a specialist in the assistance of the aging, or someone involved in the industries that focus on assistance, we will have available a wealth of information, including a special booth section, lectures and interactive discussions just for you.”
