According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in every five residents will be retirement age by 2030. And, according to the CDC, 80% of older adults have at least one chronic health condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure and/or heart disease. In this session, we’ll explore the common conditions that come with aging and understand the fundamentals of neuroscience and the impact of different types of physical activity on the brain. You’ll walk away with a deeper knowledge of aging and how to design programs to support the vitality of this ever-growing population.
