SPOT LIGHT “AGE WELL TOGETHER” HEALTH TALK
BY HEALTHY AGING ASSOCIATION
The Club had the honour of being the venue of choice for the Healthy Aging Association (HAA)’s “Age Well Together” health talk. On 23 July 2016, a total of 74 members and guests attended the talk, and were given a free bone mass screening. Held in the Auditorium, the talk was given by Cardiology Specialist Dr Kenneth Guo, Neuropsychologist Dr Donald Yeo and Dr Tan Teck Jack from Northeast Medical Group. The experts delivered explanations on heart health, aging brain and pneumonia. Through the talks, participants acquired knowledge on how to keep their hearts healthy, the effects of aging on the brain, and how to guard against pneumonia, a lung infection that affects all ages. Armed with heightened awareness of pneumonia and flu prevention, some participants went for pneumococcal and flu vaccination administered by Dr Tan in one of the meeting rooms. Others visited the booths and enjoyed a good time exchanging ideas with fellow participants. They also received bags of goodies from HAA. It was a Saturday well spent learning the “secrets” to maintaining optimal health as we age. A good number of members remarked that the talks were very informative and useful. Let’s see what some of them have to say! The talks are very good, especially the one on pneumonia. Nowadays, Pneumonia is becoming wide-spread and we should be careful to protect ourselves against it.
