Healthy Aging

With the projection that 74 million people will be over the age of 65 by 2030, there is a lot of work that needs to be done to support this population. All sectors must be engaged in planning for the opportunities of aging adults to ensure we are not only adding years to life, but life to years.

Specific objectives include educating our aging population on the importance of nutrition, socialization, availability of resources, and optimal utilization of services.
