This has been our vision in putting this event together.”

The educational sessions, conducted by industry leaders, will cover topics that are especially relevant to seniors including mental health and memory loss, the importance of mindfulness and living with purpose, safety issues, pharmaceuticals and more.

The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Tom Sattler, an expert on fitness who will discuss aging and wellness. A box lunch will be served.
