Posted by on September 3rd, 2019 Posted in: All of Us

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, all baby boomers will be older than age 65 by 2030. This will expand the size of the older population so that 1 in every 5 persons will be a senior. How can you successfully navigate the advancing years? Practice healthy aging:

  • Be physically active
  • Make smart food choices
  • Get regular health screenings
  • Participate in activities you enjoy

During September – or any month – help get the conversation started in support of healthy aging. Choose one of the three NNLM Reading club books, download the discussion guide, and share health information and programming, or apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book Kit!
