name a few." The free screenings available will include
depression and anxiety, BMI/BF percent, blood sugar, adrenal stress,
blood pressure, spinal screenings and more. Flu shots will be $25.99
with no insurance, but most insurances will be accepted. You will

present for blood donations.

flu shot, to give blood, to try to win some door prizes, or simply to
get some of the free goodies to be given out at the different booths,

opportunities to get involved in your community and keep your health
in check. Make sure to drop by Cora Veal Senior Center on Sept. 30
to get involved, be healthy, get some free stuff, and have some fun!
