Senior group to discuss flu

Getting a cold or the flu is not fun, and the good news is you can take steps to reduce your risk of getting sick.

Residents can join St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital’s Positive Aging for Life (PAL) senior group on Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Heart of Oklahoma Conference Center to learn about the key steps you can take to keep the flu from getting you.

The presentation will be hosted by St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital’s Director of Infection Prevention Vicki Milliken, MT (ASCP), and Employee Health Nurse, Cleda Byrum, RN, BSN, MS.

St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital PAL group is for seniors, age 50 and over who are interested in keeping up to date on health issues.

There is no membership fee, just an opportunity for people to get together, learn about health topics and enjoy some coffee and conversation. For more information on PAL, please call St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital’s marketing department at (405) 878-3496.
