“The event is targeted to the 50+ adult who wants to gather information about living a healthy active lifestyle,” COO of the Katz JCC Marg Mancuso said. “The event is not only informative but fun as well.”

The pre-event breakfast speaker panel will be held from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and feature Shore Medical Center Administrative Director of Revenue Cycle Mike Smith , Atlantic County Department of Intergenerational Services Certified Health Coordination Sandy Santoro, and from Blue to You team Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of NJMobile Services Specialist Jose Pereira.

Guests will be given an opportunity to ask the panel of professionals questions on the topic of “How to Choose a Medicare Supplement Policy” while enjoying a free continental breakfast.

Speakers during the event include Shore Medical Center Dr. Jon Pomeroy and Nurse Practitioner Jill Rogers on the topic of “How to Start an Exercise Program,” Urgent Care’s Dr. Gregory B. Carson on the topic of “How to Choose the Right Level of Care,” as well as, local and well-renowned nutritionist Nancy Adler on the topic of “How to fuel your body and avoid medications with a well-balanced structured daily diet.”

There will also be interactive fitness demonstrations and more than a dozen free health screenings for blood pressure, blood glucose, vision and hearing.

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.”
