Your Health: August 21, 2013 Senior citizen day

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

 Today is National Senior Citizen Day and some local seniors spent the day checking on their health.
      They attended a senior citizen health fair at East Pinson Valley Recreation Center.
     The health fair was hosted by Rite Aid.
     Those who attended had a chance to get their blood sugar checked and asked doctors and nurses questions about their health.
     Craig Riner, VP of Marketing for Rite Aids says, "One of the greatest challenges for our senior customer base is that they have a lot of multiple medications and when you have multiple medications you get drug interaction and you get vitamin depletion and other health needs because of that.  So, there's a lot of confusion."
   President Ronald Reagan declared National Senior Citizen Day in 1988.
