JCOA Health Fair Sponsors
Senior Strong at the Bridge Cty Center
Young Ladies at the Bridge City Center

To promote health and well-being, the Senior Centers of Jefferson Council on Aging will host community health fairs throughout the month of October. Open to all, the fairs will feature wellness best practices, vital health tests and information on key resources.


Many centers will provide glucose testing, blood pressure screenings, and flu shots. It is also the time to get your vision and hearing tests and start your exercise regimen. Refreshments and entertainment plus door prizes and giveaways will be featured. Guest speakers and line dancing shows will be scheduled throughout. 

Our Key Sponsors for the October Health Fairs are:

Peoples Health, Blue Advantage and Clear Captions.

We thank them for supporting our seniors! Look for their tables at each center.
