Lake Regional Health System will offer the AARP Safe Driving Course from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, in the hospital’s third floor conference rooms. This program is the nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers ages 50 and older.
Participants will be updated on current rules of the road and safety tips. They also will learn about adjustments drivers should make because of common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.
The cost of the program is $20 (or $15 for AARP members). Visit lakeregional.com/safedriving to register, or call 573.348.8222 for more information. If you do not preregister, please arrive at 9:30 a.m.
