Seniors are invited to “Engage at Any Age” at the 24th Annual Older Americans Information and Health Fair, which will be held on Thursday, May 10, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., at Centennial Hall in Dallas’ Fair Park.

Valuable health information, free screenings, giveaways and entertainment are just a few of the reasons to attend what has become the one of the largest senior events in North Texas.

Every May, the U.S. Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation’s observance of Older American’s Month, which celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities. The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
