NSU Boomers & Beyond 2011

The 6th annual Boomers & Beyond 2010 health and wellness expo will be held on Apr. 3 between 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. at NSU’s Health Professions Division. This year’s theme is “A Healthier YOU starts today!”

This free event is for those ages 40 and over. NSU will offer a wide array of health screenings, including peripheral artery disease, BMI, glucose, blood pressure, bone density, cholesterol, fall risk, foot health, memory, medication, mental health, skin health, and social wellbeing. There will also be wellness information and health education desks (including diabetes, eye health, nutrition, and medication management), and many other opportunities to learn about prevention and disease management. The Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elderly (SHINE) Program will be there to educate people about health insurance matters. The Broward Sheriff Office’s Operation Medicine Cabinet will allow people to turn in old medications for safe disposal; those who bring in medications for disposal will be entered in a drawing for a gift card. The Center for Hearing and Communication will provide free Amplified Telephones for those who qualify. Plus, there is more!

This year’s event will also feature entertainment. The Broward College Jazz Combo will perform for two hours. You can also enjoy a performance by Brazilian Voices, a female vocal group.  Popular radio station Majic 102.7 FM (The Greatest Hits of the 60s and 70s) will be onsite, so come meet a DJ and play The Beatles: Rock Band.  The American Parkinson’s Disease Association Southeast Florida Chapter will feature an Art Show entitled Parkinson’s Disease: A Journey in Creativity to celebrate April as Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month. There will also be many giveaways and prizes for our participants.

The NSU community and the public is welcome to this free event. Come out to meet local health care experts to receive a variety of health screenings and information and to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment.  To learn more or to pre-register, call: 954-NSU-CARE (678-2273) or visit:
