Four Seasons of Health Expo returns to Fremont

Submitted By the City of Fremont

Longevity has its perks and one of them is the myriad of services and opportunities available to seniors of the Tri-City area. To take advantage of the benefits, fellowship and activities open to people age 50 and above, the City of Fremont Human Services Department and Tri-City Elder Coalition are hosting the 4th annual "Four Seasons of Health Expo" at the Fremont Senior Center.

Four Seasons of Health is one of the largest health fairs in Alameda County, featuring health screenings, dental screenings, and private consultation sessions with pharmacists. Over 100 service and veteran vendors from public and nonprofit organizations and private businesses will be present to answer questions, provide services and offer volunteer opportunities. In response to upcoming changes in Medicare and MediCal, the Expo is offering individualized Medicare/MediCal options counseling. Transportation agencies will be available to distribute Clipper Cards and help people access their services.

Healthy living presentations and activities will take place throughout the day, beginning with a discussion of how changes in health care policies will affect seniors. This will be followed by demonstrations and information about Yuan Ji Dance, Zumba Gold Dance, nutritious meal preparation, and Tai Chi for Arthritis. At 11 a.m., a Color Guard ceremony will pay tribute to veterans Missing-in-Action and Prisoners of War.

The Fremont Senior Center will offer breakfast and a barbecue lunch. Breakfast may be purchased for $4 for senior center members and $5 for non-members; barbecue lunch is offered for $6 for senior center members and $8 for non-members. A vegetarian lunch alternative is also available. Dave Mandell and the SweetHarps Harmonica Band will perform during lunch. The barbecue lunch may be purchased prior to the Expo by contacting the Senior Center at (510) 790-6600.
