A new era in community health and wellness begins this summer in Fort Collins. A innovative partnership between the City of Fort Collins Recreation Department, Columbine Health Systems (Columbine) and University of Colorado Health (UC Health) will create a unique and comprehensive public health and wellness program housed at the improved and expanded Fort Collins Senior Center.
Health and wellness programmatic offerings will be placed into three broad categories: Health Awareness, Lifestyle Management, and Wellness & Education.
The programs and activities provided through this partnership will address our community's needs while responding to the lifestyles of a growing senior population. Active, health-minded seniors will find opportunities in this extensive set of resources to help them remain healthy.
