and the Stark County Health Department announce that they are once again

sponsoring a Stark County Senior Expo on Saturday, October 13th from

In order to promote the importance of senior health and wellness, the

Senior Expo will be offering some health screenings "Free-of-Charge" to

those attending the day. Free screenings include non-fasting blood sugar

tests, blood pressure checks, and colocare test kits.

In addition, flu and pneumonia shots will be available to Senior Expo

participants. Flu & pneumonia shots may be administered at no-charge for

those with Medicare Part-B and some insurance coverage. You must bring your

card to the event. Those not covered by Medicare may obtain the flu shot at

a cost of $22 and the pneumonia shot at a cost of $70.

In addition, several senior service providers and vendors will have

displays open to participants.

Gail Ripka, Mental Health Task Force member, states, "We believe this is

going to be a great event for our area seniors and even their family

members. There will be something for everyone interested in getting some

great information, taking advantage of free health screenings, and just

partaking in a pleasant day visiting with community partners. The Mental

Health Task Force is happy to have the opportunity to showcase

the many programs and services available to our area senior population."

A Free Continental Breakfast will be available to Senior Expo
