“Passport to Good Health” for people 50+
JOPLIN, Mo. – Some local residents 50 years of age and older took advantage of a local health and resource fair today.
The Freeman Advantage Free Health and Resource Fair returned this year. It was an annual event until COVID disrupted it in 2020 and 2021.
This year’s theme was “Passport to Good Health.” The event allowed residents to travel the world of healthcare without leaving Joplin.
Vendors offered health screenings, gave informative presentations and set up interactive booths.
Upon entry, Freeman gave visitors a passport to fill up with stamps from various vendors and activities. This then qualified visitors for door prizes.
Freeman Advantage is a medical, education and social program for those over the age of 50, who can receive a lifetime membership for $20. Activities include walking and bowling groups that meet three times a week, exercise classes, game days, book club, day trips and extended travel opportunities. Advantage currently has 3,100 members.
