SeniorFest Promotes a Harvest of Good Health

HUNTINGTON, WV – Cabell Huntington Hospital invites adults age 50 and older to harvest the benefits of good health during the 7th Annual SeniorFest at Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH). This year’s SeniorFest will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a full schedule of healthy and fun activities.

“SeniorFest is a fun way for seniors to gain knowledge about their health options,” said Teresa Sexton, director of nursing and Senior Services at CHH. “Seniors have the opportunity to have immunizations and screenings, enjoy music and entertainment, and relax with a good meal. And it is all free of charge.”

The day-long event offers screenings, such as blood pressure, blood sugar and prostate cancer checks. Seniors can also receive a free flu shot, talk with physicians and staff, participate in health activities and attend educational sessions. The day offers games, entertainment, food and prizes.

“SeniorFest highlights our dedication to seniors’ health and well-being,” Sexton said. “We are excited to offer a fall-themed event that will provide a wealth of information and fun.”

Seniors 50 years and older can pre-register for the event online at www.cabellhuntington.org or call Senior Services at 304.526.2520.
