Don’t wait to think about aging until you’re old

HealthCetera co-producer Liz Seegert attended the recent Gerontological Society of America Conference and spoke with one gerontologist about aging as a life-long process.  With all her expertise with reporting on aging this too sounds like sage advice.

 

This report was supported by a Journalists in Aging fellowship, a collaboration of New America Media and the Gerontological Society of America, sponsored by the Silver Century Foundation.
