East Texans came out to enjoy the annual Senior Health and Living Expo Wednesday at Harvey Convention Center.

The Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce presented the event, which is designed to provide information about health care, senior living, finances, continuing education entertainment and volunteering to senior citizens and their caregivers.

About 50 vendors were at the event, which is titled “Your Health is No Game,” and followed a game show theme.

Henry Bell, chief operating officer at the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce, said the event is held to inform seniors and their caregivers about anything seniors may have a need for.

“Seniors are an important part of our economic makeup,” Bell previously said. “Retired people have a lot of resources. Some of them bring new wealth to the community. They also have a lot of valuable time that they can volunteer to the community and help it grow.”
