The fifth edition of the area’s premier health and wellness event for seniors, sponsored by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, is adjusting its name this year to reflect the inclusion of a wider range of active adults.

The Senior and Adult Expo, presented in partnership with Shore Medical Center, will be held Thursday at the co-sponsoring Milton & Betty Katz Jewish Community Center in Margate.

“The event is targeted to the 50-plus adult who wants to gather information about living a healthy, active lifestyle,” Marg Mancuso, chief operating officer of the Katz JCC, said in a statement. “The event is not only informative but fun as well.”
