Health Fair for Older Adults

Timmins, Ontario - Monday, October 2, 2017

The Porcupine Health Unit, along with several partners, is hosting a local health fair featuring a variety of booths and speakers. In addition, we will be offering the influenza vaccine to older adults.

“Since older adults are often attending our events, this is a great opportunity for us to showcase what services are available to them,” says Natalie Vachon Ukrainetz, Public Health Nurse. “The booths will be manned by health professionals, such as a public health nurse, a dietitian and a pharmacist or volunteers that deal with seniors on a daily basis.”

Don’t miss out on the health fair happening in your community.
