You will develop practical steps for implementing these principles into your own life. In addition, the workshop will address the importance of cultivating social connections that contribute to psychological health. Providing an overarching picture of aging, A Toolkit for Successful Aging is for anyone in the growing population of people over the age of 55 interested in embracing their overall health and wellness.
