Residents of the Tecumseh Mill Apartments on Hartwell Street had the opportunity to attend a health fair held right in their building on June 23, 2017. Seniors and people with disabilities live in the 125 apartments in the renovated historic mill building. Residents had the chance to talk with representatives of Senior Whole Health, Family Service Association, Seven Hills Tobacco Cessation Program, Crifasi Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, and Partners for a Healthier Community covering its Sugar-Free Challenge. Participants could also get their blood pressure and their blood sugar checked and get a back massage in between getting information on health and health care services.
