  • Keeping Physically Fit in Retirement – Mary Lynn Hafner, PT, DPT, CEEAA, CHC. What’s on your bucket list now that you are retired? For most people, exercise is not on the list. The good news? The Blue Zone studies suggest that people with the greatest longevity are not those who do the most exercise, but the ones who move the most. The secret … have a movement practice. In this session, you will have the opportunity to self-assess your personal physical capacity with a few easy measures. Then, you’ll be guided on how to level up your current habits from where you are now and where you want to be.


Dr. Carolyn Parsey, PhD, UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center – “Memory Loss and Aging: What is Normal and What is Not?” – We all forget things, but how do you know when it’s normal or something to worry about? Please join us to learn what is considered age related memory loss versus signs of dementia.
