Being proactive

“We all know healthcare can be expensive and hard to come by for seniors. This is a great way for seniors to gain access to a variety of providers,” said Cathy Dulac, clinical coordinator with the Eagle County Paramedic Services. “Eagle County Paramedic Services exists to serve the health needs of our area and this is one way we can proactively help our seniors.”

For more information, contact Cathy Dulac at 970-926-5270 or Pat Nolan at 970-328-8831.

“The Senior Health Fair gives our older population the opportunity to focus on their individual health care needs with free screenings and information on aging and wellness. We want to try to catch any health issues in the early stages.”
