The 13th Annual Healthy Aging and Fall Prevention Summit hosted by Healthy Aging Association, Kaiser Permanente, and Stanislaus County Area Agency on Aging attracted over 1,250 attendees. Of those attendees, over 65% were 65 years of age or older.
The Healthy Aging and Fall Prevention Summit was very successful. 84% of the attendees rated the event as excellent. This event is always filled with a dozen health screenings, health information, listen and learn sessions, and a fall prevention room. Most of the attendees have attended the event in previous years, but it was the first time for 33% of the attendees. They stated that the event contained almost all of the information they intended to receive.
Thank you to all of our community partners for helping us make it another sucessful event!

The 9th Annual Age with Movement Celebration held on Friday, May 1st was a huge success.The event helped raise over $21,000 to support the Healthy Aging Association's senior health & fitness programs. Each year the event gets bigger and better. We feel fortunate to have the support of our community members and organizations.
We had nearly 400 attendees at the event moving and grooving throughout the morning. Adding the second walk at 10:00 AM allowed for later participation for many who could not attend the first walk at 8:00 AM. The exercise demonstrations provided options for older adults to stay active through a variety of activities and finding one that they enjoy. The FUNSTRUMMERS and The Quake Mobile DJ offered entertainment all morning long. The Shuttle Service provided by Dale Commons Assisted Living ran throughout the event shuttling participants to and from the church and the park. CSU Stanislaus Kinesiology Department provided fitness and health assessments to a number of attendees. The Fire Department was present to educate on home safety and Howard Training Center, Second Harvest Food Bank, along with Starbucks, provided the morning refreshments.
We are excited to share some of the publicity covered at the event and an awesome video that highlights the morning. Please click the red links below and enjoy :)
