Aging Wellness Expo returns for spring — this time in Henderson

The Review-Journal’s Aging Wellness Expo is returning this spring — this time in Henderson.

The expo for active adults 50 and older, presented by Optum Care Network of Nevada and sponsored by the Review-Journal, will take place at the M Resort from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 19. Admission and parking are free.

It’s an opportunity for “thousands of locals who wish to improve their lives in every way,” said Chase Rankin, the Review-Journal’s senior vice president of sales.

“This year’s lineup of exhibitors showcases the very companies, organizations, experts, services, and sponsors our RJ community values,” Rankin said.

Representatives from health, financial and home improvement companies will be on hand, along with multiple resources and snacks and juice from Comprehensive Cancer Centers.

Speakers at the event will cover topics such as healthy living, preventative screenings, legal and identity theft protection, exercise and Medicare basics. Expect prize giveaways and YMCA of Southern Nevada demonstrations, including Hot Hula Fitness, Silver Knuckles and Multi-level Yoga.

Other entertainment includes a production of vintage ’40s vocals called “Swing It Girls,” the cast of the musical parody “FRIENDS!” and comedy magician Farrell Dillon.

The event began in 2015 and was held twice a year in 2018 and 2019. The in-person expo returned Aug. 28 after a yearlong hiatus and will resume its twice-a-year schedule going forward.

Review-Journal Executive Editor Glenn Cook, politics and government editor Steve Sebelius, health reporter Mary Hynes, and “7@7” video news anchor Renee Summerour and reporter James Schaeffer will greet attendees in the RJ Village. Review-Journal editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez will make a presentation at the expo.
