In celebration of 75 years of service to the community, The Kennebunkport Public Health Department invites you to a special program featuring Marilyn Gugliucci, MA, Ph.D. and Professor & Director of Geriatric Education and Research at the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine – Thursday, April 21 @ 9:00 am here at Graves Library.  Please call the Library to reserve your seat (967-2778).  Light refreshments and coffee will be served.

Topics to be covered:  (1)  Older age is often associated with disease and decline and there is good reason for that–our society socially constructed it that way!  (2)  To age optimally it is important to understand why our society views aging the way it does and what we can do about it; (3) Discuss how we age and how we exercise our own empowerment in the world to address aging.

We would love to see you for this important event!
