Healthy Aging, Part 2

Fortunately, we are being treated to another great Roundtable by our own Vagabond, Dr. Bill Gaertner, who will be talking about “Healthy Aging Part 2.” This time he will be tying together a number of important health messages from previous presentations such as the devastating effects of Metabolic Syndrome, Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention, plus Healthy Aging ideas, including the latest research findings on healthy aging.

He’ll also talk about the benefits of regular physical activity for every cell in your body, healthy eating (for your heart & brain),stress management (for peace of mind), social engagement (for your soul) and the dangers of loneliness, social isolation, tobacco use (both smoking & vaping), excessive alcohol consumption and even moderate consumption as we age, plus effects of other drugs.

His emphasis will also be on simple things we all can do to increase the time before diseases or aging might take effect on our bodies, and how to create healthy habits to stay relevant and engaged during one’s “Golden Years.” There will be abundant handouts for you to bring home to share with your families & friends & hopefully time for questions & answers about healthy aging.
