With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come: How to age well by playing the cards you’ve been dealt

September 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Cost: Free

While the media touts “super-agers”, who remain illness-free and run marathons in their nineties, the reality is that those blessed with the genetics to age without any disease or disability are the minority.  Join Third Thursday @ the J as we welcome Dr. Amanda Leggett, Research Assistant Professor for U of M’s Medical School who will  define positive aging and how older adults may age well with whatever “cards they have been dealt”.

Dr. Leggett is a Research Assistant Professor in U of M’s Program for Positive Aging and Geriatric Psychiatry. Her research focus is on caregivers of individuals living with Dementia. She received the Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow at U of M in 2016 and in 2017 received a Research Scientist Development Award from the National Institute on Aging.
