Going Places: Safe Driving as You Age

AHA was very happy to support the safe driving workshop put on by NV Rides. The event featured notable speakers, a vendor fair and lunch. Attendees learned how to improve their health and well-being on and off the road. They explored safe and reliable transportation alternatives for you or your loved ones when it is time to hang up the keys.
