Facing Aging

Presented by Dr. Patrick Arbore

Because the 85+ age category is the fastest growing age category in the United States, millions of us are going to live as seniors for for many years. What we need to know are ways that we can face our aging process with curiosity, dignity, hope, and empowerment. We’ll explore these concepts as well as others in this presentation.
