Focus on Health at Allentown Senior Center
August 8, 2017
Harry Manley, of Gateway Health Plan, recently provided Allentown Senior Center participants with a healthy dose of health literacy.
His focus centered on the importance of being an informed patient and health consumer and its link to good health. Participants received information about stroke, heart disease, and practical suggestions on how to communicate better with their health professionals. After his presentation, he tested the group's comprehension using a "Wheel of Fortune"-type game that had everyone waving and shouting out answers. A fun time was had by all.
Older adults, aged 60 or older, are welcome to stop by the Allentown Senior Center, 631 E. Warrington Avenue, for a variety of health and wellness activities or call 412-481-5484 for more information.
