La Mirada’s 2014 Senior Health Fair is a Success

The City of La Mirada recently held its 2014 La Mirada Senior Health and Wellness Fair. Nearly 40 organizations including nurses, healthcare providers, and local businesses, participated in the health fair, offering everything from free blood pressure testing to derma scan screening.  

“We were happy with the turnout this year,” said Community Services Supervisor Lisa Montoya. “The City provides a great mixture of free health services, information booths, and community groups that provide a one-stop health and information experience for seniors.”

Inside the Activity Center, attendees grabbed a hot coffee and a slice of pie, compliments of Polly’s Pies, before meeting with local vendors providing information on the upcoming flu season, senior support groups and counseling services, and public transportation options in their area.

SCAN Health Plan set up an RV outside and offered free stroke screenings to participants, Biola University’s Nursing Department provided free cholesterol and glucose screenings, while CareMore Medical Group provided free spa manicures. Family Dental Works was also in attendance and offered free dental screenings.

 The La Mirada Activity Center provides information on local health services for seniors year round. Call (562) 902-3160 for more information.
