Get Healthier, Visit the ‘Listening Post’

BLOOD PRESSURE

Here’s an opportunity to get a better understanding of your health, help make St. Louis a better place to live and discover AARP’s real possibilities—all in one location.

The Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour with AARP plans a stop May 26 in the upper level parking area of the Jewish Community Center, 2 Millstone Campus Drive. The tour stop will coincide with the 35th annual St. Louis Senior Olympics, which runs May 22-27.

Free health services, education and screening will be offered. Tests will include cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose, body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, body age and weight. For hours and more information, go to local.aarp.org/stlouis.

Adjacent to the tour stop, AARP in St. Louis will host a “Listening Post” and invites anyone over 50 to answer the question: “What would make St. Louis an even better place to live?” You do not need to be a member to participate.

“These Listening Post events are a fun and creative way for our members and nonmembers to express what a great community St. Louis is and what would make it even better,” said Sheila Holm, AARP associate state director for community outreach.
