Syracuse Speaks-What Does It Take To Age Healthy?


We can't avoid aging. 

But as we grow older our physical health, our cognitive ability, and our living situation can start to change. Financial health is also important, as it affects where we live and the choices we can make to age as happy and healthy as possible.

Though there are many changes that come with aging, there are ways to anticipate them and even make them easier. 

Joining us for a conversation on how to age healthy, the Inaugural Chair of the Department of Geriatrics and Director of Nappi Longevity Institute at Upstate Medical University Doctor Sharon Brangman, Executive Director of Upstate Oasis Senior Program Cynthia Woods, and Medical Director of Pace CNY and Board of Trustee Member of Loretto Health Doctor Douglas Tucker.
