Senor Health Expo Marking Its 18th Year

The Lompoc Senior Health Expo will return for its 18th year, 9 a.m.-noon Friday, May 18, at Dick DeWees Community and Senior Center, 1120 W. Ocean Ave.

Attended by hundreds of seniors each year, the free event is open to seniors and their caregivers.

Dozens of agencies, organizations and businesses will be on hand to provide health resources, information and activities specifically geared toward the older population.

This year’s Expo will feature cholesterol and blood-sugar checks (fasting required); blood pressure assessments; skin cancer screening; vision tests and bone density evaluations.

Seniors can also partake in cooking demonstrations, a barbecue lunch and have the chance to win door prizes.

Information booths will provide community resources and information on such topics as Medicare; fraud and scams; fall prevention; Alzheimer's disease and dementia; diabetes and advance directives.

Promotores de Salud will be giving tours of the Expo to Spanish speakers, and Lompoc’s COLT bus service will offer free transportation from a variety of Lompoc locations.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
