“Well Beyond 60!” EXPO at Ohio State Fair to Offer Free Information and Services

“Well Beyond 60!” EXPO will be open during National Church Residences’ Senior Day at the Ohio State Fair on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Now in its third year, the EXPO will feature health screenings that will help visitors of all ages identify healthy choices they can make throughout their lifespans to ensure they live a healthier, more active life at age 60 and beyond. The event is free with fair admission, which is only $4 all day for visitors age 60 and older.


Fairgoers visiting the EXPO will have access to free health screenings and educational displays including: blood pressure screening, falls risk assessment, balance testing, vision screening, nutrition education, physical activity and more. New this year: Fairgoers can meet at the EXPO tent for a free “Walk With A Doc,” where visitors can get valuable advice and the opportunity to ask questions of a physician.


Fairgoers who attend the free Senior Day Concert “The Carpenters Tribute featuring Michelle Whited,” will also be treated to an “A Matter of Balance” falls prevention mini-workshop.
