Join UPMC Senior Services in collaboration with the Center for Integrative Medicine with expert researchers from The Aging Institute and The University of Pittsburgh to answer the question: Can we redefine aging?

"The health conditions one experiences with age and as part of our Western lifestyle are not necessarily as certain as death and taxes" Glick, 2016.  

So, how can we use our mind to  Live Longer and Better? 

This program will examine the role of stress on health, wellness, and immunity while taking a deeper dive into the definition of aging.
