Looking for Health Info? Check Out the Boomers and Seniors Health Fair

Martin Memorial is hosting an event that can help baby boomers and seniors who are looking for information on ways to improve their health.

The annual Boomers and Seniors Health and Wellness Fair takes place Friday, March 6 from 7 a.m. to noon. The free event is located at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Parish Life Center, located at 701 E. Ocean Blvd. in Stuart.

Cooking demonstrations will take place at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. and refreshments will be available throughout the event. Health care representatives from dozens of different agencies throughout our area will be attending to answer questions.
