Presentation of the HCE lesson - I'm Positive I'm Aging - will be held at University of Illinois Extension, Crawford County on Friday, February 10.  The event will begin at 10 AM & will be presented using the university's webinar system. 

What is the secret to successful aging?  Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with your income, being free from illnesses or a life free from disappointments.  Studies have shown that successful aging has more to do with being optimistic (instead of having a positive attitude), maintaining friendships and choosing to live a healthy lifestyle.  These are just a few of many considerations for aging well and making the most of our later years.  This lesson will include research related to positive aging as well as a discussion on ageism and how negative stereotypes of aging can contribute to prejudices and even discrimination.
