Norfolk, VA (April 7, 2008) – Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) is proud to sponsor the 12th Annual Educational Conference and Health Fair on Friday, May 16, 2008.  The event will take place at The Murray Center, located at 455 E. Brambleton Avenue, 8:00am – 3:00pm. 

This year’s conference, “Exercising Your Power…Extending and Bending to Stay Healthy,” will include more than 20 vendors providing health screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.  Guest speakers will address issues concerning the senior population. 

The conference will enlighten, educate, and encourage the participants to live an active and healthy life.  There will be demonstrations of the new Nintendo WII invigorating game, which has been used to help keep senior citizens active without putting too much strain on their bodies through traditional games such as bowling. 

Door Prizes, continental breakfast, and lunch will be provided.  The fee is $10 for the general public, but will be waived for residents who live in NRHA assisted-rental communities.  To register for the event, or for additional information, please contact April Espree at 314-1525.
