August 13 - Aging Healthy: Let's Talk About Healthy Aging in Anchorage
What does it mean to "age healthy?" And what does it take to be healthy as we age in The Last Frontier? Join UAA professor of Population Health Science, Dr. Britteny Howell, and her research assistants for this discussion on the challenges and opportunities for aging healthily in Anchorage, AK. This engaging presentation will also include results from their recent research project that asked 65 older adults and senior stakeholders in Anchorage how they think about healthy aging using Concept Mapping. They will describe the research process, their results, next steps, and information for how you can get involved in future aging research right here in Anchorage!
