Aging with Panache: Our Love Hate Relationship with Age
A seminar with Dr. Nancy Schlossberg
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Crist Boardroom, Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center
Dr. Nancy Schlossberg will lead a seminar on aging with panache. The saying goes, "You are as old as you feel," but there are two conflicting beliefs. Can one age from 30 on with style, or is it all downhill after 40? Which version of aging is your version? A recent study asked adults to respond to positive or negative statements about aging. Twenty years later, they checked the records of those they interviewed and found that "those who viewed aging more positively lived, on average, seven and a half years longer than those who were negative about it." Could your view on aging be the secret to a longer, more fulfilling life? Space is limited for this event. Click here to RSVP. For more more information, contact Heather Gleason at or 301.405.1019.
