FINDING BALANCE: ENHANCING PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING
Registration coming soon.
Maintaining “balance” in our lives provides a way to enhance our overall quality of life as we age, while staying engaged in activities that can help to lower stress and prevent cognitive decline. This year’s conference will focus on providing useful suggestions to promote successful aging and brain health by finding greater balance in our lives. Our experts will review practical ways to incorporate the science of successful aging in our daily activities, including the most up-to-date scientific information on ways to enhance physical, emotional, and social well-being.
Registration for the conference is $50 ($150 for Psychologists requesting CE credits) and will include a continental breakfast and lunch. The day-long conference will conclude with a panel discussion period that will give participants an opportunity to ask questions of our experts.
- How finding “balance” can support our physical, emotional, and social well-being
- Balance exercises and physical fitness to prevent injuries and cognitive decline
- Staying mentally fit with cognitive exercises to support brain health
