Richmond-area seniors are invited to take advantage of a new, two-hour-long health clinic hosted by the Commission on Aging in partnership with Lifelong Medical Care.

The walk-in health and wellness clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, April 18, at Richmond Memorial Auditorium (Bermuda Room). Doors open at 9:30 a.m. The clinic serves people ages 55 and over in the Richmond area.

Free health screening and testing will be provided by Lifelong Medical, which will spotlight its new health Willian Jenkins Health Clinic in Richmond.

Guest speakers at the event will include Dr. Miriam Parker, who will speak about dental care, and Dr. Desmond Carson, who will speak about heart health.

Light refreshments will be served.
