Aging is not a disease or problem to be solved, it is a natural process of living! This course will explore integrative medicine’s approach to helping us thrive as we age. What nutritional and lifestyle choices should we be making right now to give ourselves an edge against chronic disease and cognitive decline? What are some myths about “anti-aging” strategies? How can we shift our framework of concepts on aging so that we thrive as we move through our elder years?

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the effects of aging on cognition, cardiovascular, immune, and musculoskeletal systems
  • Identify three lifestyle and nutritional interventions that can reduce the risk of chronic disease
  • Discuss the evidence of safety and benefit for dietary supplements commonly used in the elderly population

Recommended Audience: Assistant, Dentist, Hygienist, Office, Technician
