JCC to hold annual Active Adult & Senior Expo on Sept. 27

The JCC will once again hold its Active Adult & Senior Expo on Thursday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Expo, which is the largest active adult health and wellness exhibit in southern New Jersey, is presented in partnership with the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce and AtlantiCare.

The Active Adult & Senior Expo focuses on lifestyle and active aging for baby boomers and seniors. During its 10-year history, the Expo has reached more than 3,000 adults, seniors and caregivers each year.

It features free health screenings by AtlantiCare, including blood pressure and heart screenings, as well as access to information on products and services from more than 50 vendors. There will also be a panel of speakers on various topics pertaining to active adults in our community and interactive demonstrations and classes offered by the fitness staff at the JCC.

The morning speaker panel will feature a free continental breakfast at 10:30 a.m. Attendees will also be able to ask their health questions to a panel of experts.

Other program highlights include flu shots provided by Walgreens Pharmacy, hearing screenings by Total Hearing Care, and educational seminars hosted by AtlantiCare, other sponsors, and vendors such as Care One and Atlantic Medical Imaging.

Free transportation to the JCC from several locations is available via shuttles sponsored by the Atlantic County Department of Intergenerational Services. Shuttles will pick up from the Boscov’s parking lot in Egg Harbor Township, as well as 55 and older communities in Longport, Margate, Ventnor and Atlantic City, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and operating every 30 minutes.

Caregivers and younger adults are encouraged to attend to gather valuable information on current and future health care options available in the community.
