NORTH LIBERTY– There will be a free fitness screening at the North Liberty Visiting Nurses Association flu clinic on Friday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. until noon at the North Liberty Recreation Center, 820 W. Cherry St., North Liberty.
Fitness screening can help assess balance and strength, both of which are extremely important in preventing falls. The free screening, taking approximately five minutes, will be conducted by trained volunteers with the oversight of a community expert.
Screening will include three standardized tests including a timed “Up and Go Test,” a leg strength test, and an arm strength test. Participants will receive a copy of their results, information on ways to improve their balance and strength, and related community resource information.
Come and get your flu shot (don’t forget your Medicare Card or other insurance information), and get this valuable free test at the same time.
