Friendships are just plain good for you; in fact, social connections are strongly linked to a person's overall health. As people age their risk to be isolated from friends, the community, and past activities increases. To better connect Lorain County adults ages 55 and over to the community, the Buddy Connect Program is available at no cost through Lorain County Public Health and the Lorain County Board of Mental Health.
This September across Lorain County, residents can get their blood drawn at a low cost and learn their cholesterol, blood glucose, complete blood count, and other health indicators. Public health nurses from Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) will answer questions and provide information during blood draw sessions at community locations throughout Lorain County. All Lorain County adults ages 55 and older are invited.
