Senior Health Care Clinics and Screenings

Aging Partners is happy to announce that we have grown from one clinic location to now having two. One is still at the Downtown Senior Center the second clinic location is at St. Mark's United Methodist Church – Vermeer Education Center (just north of the church). These two programs are co-sponsored with the University Of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing. Both clinics offer a variety of individual and group screenings that provide participants with the knowledge of personal health risks and information about things they can do to lower those risks and optimize their health.
