"Transforming Community: The Art of Active Aging"

Aging and Health Week

For URI's annual Thewlis Lecture on Gerontology and Geriatrics, Tim Carpenter, founder of EngAGE; host/producer of the EXPERIENCE TALKS radio show.

He will address "Transforming Community: The Art of Active Aging."
In this lively talk, Tim will discuss the cutting edge developments in programming toward senior health, creativity and civic engagement. He will present case studies of seniors who have engaged in new lifestyles in later life and experienced profound advances in health, longevity and life satisfaction. Anecdotal stories will be tied to research that shows that aging can be a window to opportunity, a second act, a natural progression through the phases in adult development - and a key to a happier, fuller later life.

A reception will be held before the lecture from 6-7 pm. Please register at http://tinyurl.com/thewlis2013.
