PITTSBORO — With the support of the University of North Carolina School of Nursing and the Chatham Health Alliance, the Chatham County Council on Aging has continued its tradition of promoting good health practices.
“In previous years, we have held in-person health fairs that were very well received by the community,” said Liz Lahti, manager of the Council’s Eastern Center and coordinator of the Council’s health promotion programs. “But with COVID-19, we have decided to go virtual as we have so many of our other events and activities.”
The Council on Aging is offering its 2021 version of a health fair throughout the month of March. Its Virtual Health & Wellness Expo began on March 2 with a very informative and well attended seminar focused on the COVID-19 vaccine. UNC nursing students led the planning and presentation.
Every Tuesday at 11:15 a.m., UNC nursing students, faculty and other experts will explore a range of topics including:
• Health Is Wealth — Being Active: March 9
• Home Safety Tips & Falls Prevention: March 16
• Eating Good, Feeling Better: March 23
• Prevention Is Key to Great Health: March 30
