The Cost of Healthy Aging: Is it worth the effort?

Martin Sliwinski, Professor of Human Development and Family Studies and Director for the Center for Healthy Aging will present...

Society is rapidly aging. More people are living longer than ever before, yet many view aging, that is growing older, as something to be avoided at all cost! The media relentlessly delivers messages about how we can "turn back the close" and "feel younger". Health care professionals urge us to "eat healthy" and "exercise daily" for the sake of maintaining youthful vigor and to prolong our lives. In this lecture Dr. Sliwinski explores the meaning of "healthy aging" and asks the question "What is the impact of our lifestyle choices on whether live longer, happier and more productive lives?" He will discuss what living longer means for each of us as individuals, whether efforts directed toward healthy aging are "worth it," and the implications of our personal choices for society as whole.
