Many older adults, baby boomers, caregivers, families, persons with disabilities and professionals will visit the Active Boomers Expo this year to explore the 50-plus exhibitors and vendors, as well as take advantage of the many resources that will be available during the 4th annual Active Boomers Expo on Friday, October 19, 2018 at the prestigious Greenbriar Mall from 10 AM – 2 PM in southwest Atlanta.
Mr. Creed W. Pannell, Jr., CEO of the Active Boomer’s Expo is excited to bring seminars, workshops, onsite health check-ups, medical screenings, live music, celebrity guest appearances that will present their latest products and services at this years’ annual Boomers Expo.
This all-in-one stop will be for those looking to connect with businesses that offer services for those aged 50 and beyond. The goal is to increase awareness of local, state, and national health services available; and motivate participants to make positive health behavior changes. We are expecting well over 600-plus participants for this FREE event.
We must take the time to recognize aging adults for their gifts, talents and wisdom. It’s vital that we know what issues are important to mid-life and older adults so we can provide the resources for them.
With the expo comes commitments from our vendors and sponsors. We would like to thank: Dignity Memorial and Forrest Lawn, Atlanta Business Journal Magazine, Vines Café, LeadingAge Georgia, Atlanta Medical Association, and others for their support. Additionally, we are grateful for our entertainers, members of the clergy, community leaders, friends, family, and other supporters who will join us on October 19th at Greenbriar Mall to celebrate the cultural heritage and strength of our people.
Boomers are responsible for changing the way we look at aging. Georgia, like most states, is anticipating a substantial increase in our elder population. Data from the 2010 Census reveals that the Atlanta region is getting older and that those ages 45-64 make up the fastest growing segment in the region.
AARP recently came out with a survey assessing the concerns of what matter most to the African American population who are 50 and older; The study shows that the top five issues facing older Georgians are: transportation, prescription drug assistance, caregiver assistance and respite care, income and financial assistance, and housing.
The Boomers Expo will have representation from each of the top five categories present to share valuable information to participants. As you know, education is powerful! Join us…
