The Wellness Fair benefited seniors

This week (Monday, 25 October) GIS Spotlight checks on the 'Big Count', explores how to best help at-risk youth and visit Cayman's first senior Wellness Fair.

It has been two weeks since the start of Census 2010. To find out how the counting progresses, GIS Spotlight talks to census workers and supervisors. We ask them about their challenges and successes so far.

Next we take a look at how the Education Ministry's Behaviour and Educational Support Team (BEST) is working to bring at-risk youth back from the brink.

We hear from Programme Coordinator Michael Myles about BEST details and benefits. We also interview Education Minister Rolston Anglin on what his ministry is doing to identify at-risk youth.

Our final stop is the Department of Children and Family Services' Wellness Fair for seniors. The event celebrates Older Persons Month and gives seniors access to the latest health information for keeping body and mind strong.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All the stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.

Comments and suggestions about the programme are always welcome. Viewers can provide feedback by e-mailing Spotlight@gov.ky.
