Posted by Kaitlyn McConnell on May 14, 2018 Seniors stand alongside a fence.

Aging comes with a variety of challenges, but CoxHealth will soon offer education and resources to help ease those changes at Senior Fest 2018.

Scheduled for May 15, Senior Fest is an opportunity for free education, information and health tests. Blood pressure checks, functional balance and strength assessments, and bone density, spinal and vein screenings will be conducted for attendees, completely for free.

Additionally, nearly 30 local organizations will offer tips and information about senior-specific services. Snacks, giveaways and door prizes – including to attractions in Branson – are also part of the event, which will be held at the Republic Community Center (711 E. Miller Rd., Republic) from 1 to 3 p.m.

No registration is required for the event, which is hosted by CoxHealth Fitness Centers’ Republic location. For more information, please call 417-269-2428.
