Turner Senior Wellness Program

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, TSWP will be offering most of our fall programming virtually. See our Events & Activities below to learn more and register. We recognize that virtual programming and online access isn't available to everyone. Because of that, TSWP will be opening office hours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00-5:00, where you can socialize, connect with others and resources, and use the computer lab. Please know that when you enter the building, we will be asking health screening questions, reading your temperature, collecting contact information, requiring masks and social distancing, and limiting capacity. We hope that you continue to engage with TSWP in ways that are comfortable for you.
