Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino has announced that the 19th annual "Healthy Living" conference for Spanish-speaking seniors will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7 at White Plains Hospital, and encourages all eligible seniors to attend.
"Good health enhances a better quality of life in so many ways,” Astorino said. “”It gives people more energy that they can take part in more activities.”
Topics at this year’s program will be diabetes, hypertension and nutrition.
The free event for people 60 and older will be under way from 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in the hospital's Marion W. Fried Auditorium at Davis Avenue and East Post Road in White Plains.
Dr. Samuel Arce, a family physician and attending physician at the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in New York City, will speak about diabetes and hypertension. Christina McGeough, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator at the Institute for Family Health in New York City, will discuss the importance of good nutrition.
The program was organized by the Coalition on Hispanic Aging. It is sponsored by the coalition, Westchester County’s Department of Senior Programs and Services, White Plains Hospital, AARP and the American Diabetes Association.
Registration is required. To sign up, contact Corina Sonara, DSPS’ liaison to the coalition, at (914) 813-6393 or email@example.com. Seniors who live in Yonkers, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck and Port Chester should also contact Sonara for bus reservations.
