Gerontology Conference

Making Changes for Healthy Aging

April 19, 2017
9 a.m. - noon

RIC Faculty Center
Main Dining Room

Sponsored by the Gerontology Center, the School of Nursing and the Health and Physical Education Department

Rhode Island’s Healthy Aging Data Report, released in 2016, investigated comparatively the status of health of older Rhode Islanders across its 39 towns and cities. The findings identified both the areas of need for behavioral modification by individuals that could enhance their own aging as well as the needs for communities to transform themselves to better accommodate their older citizens.

The conference will offer presentations on the implications of the report and the changes at the individual and societal levels that can promote healthy aging.
