AARP Smart Driver Course Set for March 23
Jefferson Community Health & Life Sterling Connection will offer the AARP Smart Driving Course on Thursday, March 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the JCH&L conference room. Participants may bring a sack lunch or purchase lunch in the JCH&L cafeteria.
Traffic statistics show that older adults overall are safe drivers with good driving records. However, medical conditions, certain medications and age-related changes in physical and mental function can increase the risk of crashes and injury among older drivers. It is critically important that older drivers make driving safely a personal priority. AARP Driver Safety is committed to helping Americans 50 and older sustain mobility and safety as they age.
The four-hour research based course is offered by JCH&L Sterling Connection. Membership is not required in Sterling Connection or AARP. AARP members get a discount and must bring their AARP card to class. All participants must bring their driver’s license to class.
The cost of the class is $15 for AARP members or $20 for non-AARP members. Pre-registration is required by March 16. To register please call Lana Likens at 402-729-6855.
