What IS ‘successful” aging; how can we help ourselves – and others – get there? Interested in exploring this with other Harvard/Radcliffe alums? Inviting you to join us.

- Is it helpful – and interesting -- to learn about these issues at any age? Earlier choices affect us as we age: physical and emotional health, finances, relationships – and what we pass to others, including our children.What IS successful aging? Since all who survive long generally experience sickness, old age and death, is successful aging an oxymoron?
-Interesting conversations, helpful learnings, enjoyment, friendships arise as we share our ideas, knowledge, and experience.

-Or, since all who survive long generally experience sickness, old age and death, do you think successful aging an oxymoron?

Structure: Meet once a month, more for those who wish, for 1 ½ hours to share our experiences, understandings, usually a question/topic for our meeting, perhaps a speaker, perhaps related reading or podcast or video; occasionally a moment to celebrate a birthday of a group member – whether it’s 25 or 50 or 100.
Breakout groups encourage deeper discussions and connections.
Participate and help shape the discussion and the structure.
