The York County Area Agency on Aging will host free educational workshops to learn about the “10-KeysTM to Healthy Aging.” The workshops will be taught by a certified health ambassador through the Area Agency on Aging.
These free workshops will be held virtually 1-2:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Dec. 8 through Jan. 5. Each session will cover two topics. A computer and internet access are required as the class will be held via Zoom.
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.
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; receiving 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.
Preregistration is required. Call Megan Craley at (717) 771-9610, ext. 1017, to register.
