Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) partnered with the Bergen Family Center to offer a free Senior Health Fair. Seventeen vendors, including AARP, Englewood Department of Health, and SHIP (Medicare), provided their health services to about 150 seniors that attended this year’s fair.
The fair included blood pressure screenings, pulmonary function tests, diabetes and nutrition education, a demonstration and patient participation in chair yoga exercise, and a hearty hot lunch.
“Offering free health services to Englewood’s senior residents is something we feel speaks to our hospital’s mission; providing high quality, compassionate care to the community we serve,” said Phyllis Brown-Edwards, Director of Community Affairs. “We strive to ensure that our services meet the healthcare needs of seniors in our community.”
