Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This daylong course is offered by the College of Continuing Education's LearningLife program.
Did you know that as we get older, we become less like one another? This allows us to define good health and healthy longevity for ourselves. Aging Well/Being Well will explore the physical and social aspects of positive aging, and include discussions about the roles of resiliency, wellness, and well being.
This session is part of a four-session series. All sessions include refreshments, lunch, and resources. Take all four sessions ($500) or single sessions ($150). To learn more, visit Encore Transitions: Preparing for Post-Career Life
