Wednesday, August 22, 10:00am, Hopewell Valley Senior Center, 395 Reading Street, Pennington. Dr. Marc T. Chianese from Your Health Now LLC returns with a presentation on osteoporosis and falling.  For adults over the age of 65, falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the most common cause of non fatal trauma in the ER. At the presentation you will learn what osteoporosis is, complicating factors, and ways to help your body function better.  Whether you have chronic pain, an acute injury, or are simply not satisfied with your current level of health, come and learn how to improve yourself.  It’s never too early or too late to get healthier.  If you want something you don’t have, you need to change what you’re doing.  Learn how.
