Bart and Cherry Starr to Appear at Event
The Green Bay Packers, along with SecureHorizons by UnitedHealthcare, is presenting Training Camp for Seniors with Bart and Cherry Starr, Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2008, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lambeau Field Atrium.
The free event for all Medicare beneficiaries and members of the general public will feature a talk from the Starrs and a full day of activities and programs to help seniors live healthier lives.
Bellin Health, the Official Healthcare Partner of the Packers, also will participate and offer various health screenings, interactive fitness demonstrations and informational talks throughout the day. Health checks such as blood pressure measurement, lung capacity and bone density heel scan screening will be available.
Training camp attendees will be able to attend the Pfizer cholesterol screenings, learn about healthy cooking tips, visit with tour agencies offering trips for seniors, and learn more about their Medicare and the full range of Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D plans available in the Green Bay area.
A booth featuring the Nintendo Wii video game also promises to be an exciting area for attendees. The electronic game is increasingly being used to strengthen mental and physical health, and is becoming very popular with seniors.
Attendees also will get a chance to test some of their football skills with a selection of inflatable games. A bingo break area is planned, as well as a drawing for a Bart Starr-autographed football.
Registration is recommended and interested individuals should call 877/299-7103 for more information.
