      Your Health: August 21, 2013 Senior citizen day

      {}Today is National Senior Citizen Day and some local seniors spent the day checking on their health. {}{}{}{}{} They attended a senior citizen health fair at East Pinson Valley Recreation Center. {}{}{}{} The health fair was hosted by Rite Aid. {}{}{}{} Those who attended had a chance to get their blood sugar checked and asked doctors and nurses questions about their health. {}{}{}{} Craig Riner, VP of Marketing for Rite Aids says, "One of the greatest challenges for our senior customer base is that they have a lot of multiple medications and when you have multiple medications you get drug interaction and you get vitamin depletion and other health needs because of that.{} So, there's a lot of confusion."{}{} President Ronald Reagan declared National Senior Citizen Day in 1988.
