BSN Students Provide Wellness Day for Area Seniors

The annual Senior Health and Fitness Day will be held at the Julian Smith Casino/Lake Olmstead Park on Tuesday, April 14. Start time is 8:45 a.m.

The wellness event is sponsored by Georgia Regents University, GRU College of Nursing, and Augusta Recreation, Parks, and Facilities. Approximately 143 junior BSN students will provide wellness activities and education for approximately 200 area seniors from the five senior centers operated by the Recreation Department.

After the National Anthem, invocation, and a welcome by Tamara McKethan from the GRU College of Nursing, participants will stretch and then move to the competition areas.

Those attending will also enjoy a Tai Chi presentation before lunch.
