2013 Wellness Fair held at Peachtree Mall

Posted: Updated:

If you passed by Peachtree Mall in Columbus on Thursday morning you may have noticed many cars in the parking lot before the mall even opened.

That's because Peachtree Mall and the River Valley Area Agency on Aging is commemorating Older Americans Month with the 2013 Wellness Fair.

There were dozens of organizations there from the Medical Center to Curves that even had Zumba demonstrations.

We spoke with Lauren Pfrogner, the special events coordinator with the Agency on Aging who tells us what they hope to accomplish through the fair.

"Our goal here today is to educate seniors and make them more aware of the different vendors or organizations that are available to them around the Columbus area to make them a healthier person,"said Pfrogner.

This year's theme for Older Americans Month is unleashing the power of age -- with a focus on helping seniors find new ways to stay healthy and active.

They provided free health screenings, education, products and information on certain services.
