Healthy Living, Active Aging for All

Digital Education Programming Presented by the
Center for Health & Wellbeing

An inevitable fact of life is that from the moment we are born, we begin to age. That can be an intimidating prospect – a literal lifetime of aging – but with a positive approach and the tools and knowledge to actively age, each birthday can become of a milestone to be celebrated, not an occasion to dread.

In this virtual Zoom presentation, you’ll join representatives from the Crosby Wellness Center, AdventHealth and Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen to learn more about active aging at any age. You’ll spend time learning about functional fitness and stretching, healthy nutrition and common health care mistakes we might make as we age. A Q&A session following the presentation gives you the opportunity to have your active aging questions answered by experts who practice in the field.

By attending this program, you can expect to:

  • Gain a deeper understanding about the concept of functional fitness.
  • Learn specific exercises that help in performing everyday activities.
  • Learn the health benefits of a nutrient-rich smoothie, including a recipe you can easily make at home.
