On Jan. 27 SkyRidge Senior Circle will celebrate its ninth anniversary with a free health fair for seniors 50 and over from 8 a.m. to noon.

The event will be held at the YMCA on Urbane Road. There will be several screenings, lab work and valuable information available for seniors.

Existing members and those who become members on Monday will be eligible for a free lipid profile and glucose test. Please remember to fast for this test, but you may drink water.

Seniors will have the opportunity to enroll in the free Yellow Dot program at the health fair. The Tennessee Department of Transportation recently launched the Yellow DOT Program, which is designed to assist first responders in identifying vital medical information for senior drivers.

The program features yellow stickers that are placed in the bottom left side of the rear window of vehicles and yellow envelopes containing a photo, medical history and prescription drug information for glove compartments.

Senior Circle is a national organization sponsored by SkyRidge Medical Center that makes life even better for adults age 50 and better.

By providing programs that encourage continued learning, healthy lifestyles and social activities, Senior Circle is reaching out to help seniors live fun, fulfilling lives whiles saving money, aging gracefully and making new friends.

There are approximately 97,000 members nationally and approximately 1,100 members in the Bradley County area. Many of the members join for the fellowship and educational opportunities offered at our local chapter and use of over 40 local and national discounts.
