It’s Physical and Mental Fitness Month at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, so grab your sneakers and get ready to become an expert on what it means to be Senior Strong! Join experts from the Center for Health & Wellbeing to learn all about health and fitness as we age, including an in-depth look at the risks associated with falls and tips for prevention, ways to avoid illness and exercises that increase strength and flexibility.
In this program, physical therapy professionals from AdventHealth Sports Medicine & Rehab and fitness experts representing the Peggy & Philip B.

- understand the importance of weight training for older adults;
- gain insight into fall prevention and the importance of it in your every-day;
- and learn additional exercise and stretching tips to maintain a physical and healthy lifestyle.
