Older Adult's Work Group Screens at Desert West Senior Center
This morning our Older Adult’s Work Group screened seniors for oral cancer and disease at City of Phoenix’s Desert West Senior Center. The screenings took place from around 9am to 11am during a health fair and the group was able to see about 20 individuals.
It was the first of three senior screenings our Older Adult’s Work Group will be putting on at various City of Phoenix Senior Centers. Next Friday, March 22nd they will be at the Paradise Valley Senior Center and on Friday, April 19th they will at the Pecos Senior Center.
Click here if you’re interested in volunteering on either of those days!
Thank you to all of today’s volunteers for their time. A big thank you goes out to Emma Violante, RDH from our Older Adult Work Group and Lacretia Bacon from City of Phoenix for making this event possible.
We hope to see you at the next screening!
