Be Wealthy While Being Healthy!

Take ownership of your health!  "10-Keys"TM to Healthy Aging workshops are being offered virtually.

Developed by the Center for Aging and Population Health at the University of Pittsburgh, along with the CDC Prevention Research Center, this health-promotion program for those 60 and older, provides many no-cost and low-cost preventative services to promote successful aging. The workshops will be taught by a certified Health Ambassador through the Area Agency on Aging.

Each of the “10 Keys”TM is an important step in preventing disease and improving quality of life.  They include:  lowering systolic blood pressure; stopping smoking; participating in cancer screenings; regular immunizations; regulating blood glucose; lowering LDL cholesterol; being physically active; maintaining healthy bones, joints and muscles; combating depression and maintaining social contact.

A free resource manual will be provided, that provides a wealth of information on preventative, proven strategies that work.

These FREE workshops will be held virtually on Tuesdays, December 8 through January 5, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Each session will cover two topics. A computer and internet access is required as the class will be held via Zoom.

Pre-registration is required.  Call Megan Craley at 717-771-9610, ext. 1017 to register.
