Thanks to COTA NT for inviting us again to participate in their annual Seniors Expo in June.

This year’s Expo was held indoors in Palmerston, quite a change from the Museum lawns.

As we were located with a small group of “Fitness and Well-being” providers, we made sure we had plenty of information on arthritis and exercise.  As optimum arthritis management includes appropriate and regular exercise, we gave away many relevant materials as well as condition specific information.

We enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many interested people from both the general public, and other providers (fitness and health).
