Hello fellow seniors. The annual Senior Citizen Health Awareness Fair will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Jack Curtis Stadium in Cooper River Park, rain or shine. By showing your Medicare card, Camden County residents can receive a seasonal flu shot for free. In addition, the fair features health information tables, games, and prizes. Health screenings will be provided for issues such as blood pressure, cholesterol, vision, and diabetes. There will also be information about prescription/insurance programs, medical equipment, financial/consumer information, and social service programs.

Once again, the Camden County Division of Senior Services and the Camden County Nutrition Project will be sponsoring boxed lunches at the health fair, but you must have a ticket in order to receive one. For more information, or to RSVP for lunch tickets, you can register online by visiting or calling the Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services at (856)-858-3220.
