“Sex, Drugs, & Walk ‘n’ Roll: Promoting Healthy Aging for All”

This year’s conference will highlight a holistic approach to health and well-being in later life for all, including older adults with varying ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Alethea Fleming, ND, of Vital Aging Clinic, Anacortes, WA, who will present on naturopathic approaches to healthy aging, and Rev. Dr. Alice Scannell, gerontologist, educator and Episcopal priest, who will discuss her recent book, Radical Resilience.

Additional speakers will address a variety of issues important for older adults, including sex and aging in care communities, substance use and abuse in later life, therapeutic benefits of music for older adults, food as medicine, and physical activity promotion for all.

Please see the conference program page for further details on presentations and speakers!
