SAN LUIS OBISPO – Cuesta College invites the community to the Senior Wellness Fair, hosted by Cuesta College nursing students, at the Paso Robles Senior Center on Friday, Mar. 22. This free event aims to empower seniors with essential insights and strategies for healthy living. 

Attendees will receive health assessments, including blood pressure, pulse, vision acuity, memory testing, and evaluations of balance and flexibility. Informative sessions will cover exercise, osteoporosis prevention, recognizing signs and symptoms of strokes or heart attacks, healthy eating habits, and more.

“This marks the third wellness fair hosted by the Cuesta College LVN class for our community,” said Cary Lou Martinson, Nursing Faculty at Cuesta College. “These dedicated students have completed their classroom studies and are eager to apply their knowledge in real-world settings. Interacting with seniors living independently offers them invaluable experience and the chance to promote optimal health practices.”

The Senior Wellness Fair will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Paso Robles Senior Center at 270 Scott Street, Paso Robles, CA 93446.
