    “I am very excited to celebrate Putnam Hospital Center’s 50th birthday by hosting a free senior health fair for our senior citizens! In the past, the senior fairs I have co-hosted have been a great opportunity for seniors to come in to receive free information and services,” said Senator Greg Ball. “I am continuing my fight to deliver much needed funding for senior programs throughout the district, I’m also fighting to freeze school taxes for seniors and constantly working to support the concerns of individual constituents throughout my district.”

Caldas, president of Putnam Hospital Center. “We are very pleased to partner with Senator Ball to further that commitment by offering a health fair that is specifically geared to them.”
