Celebrating LIFE and Our Coming of Age Speaker Series
As our population continues to age, there is a growing demand for accessible and high-quality education focusing on topics related to healthy ageing.
In response, Programs for 50+ at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education and the LIFE Institute, celebrating their 25th Anniversary, have partnered with Mount Sinai Hospital’s Healthy Ageing and Geriatrics Program to present an inaugural five-part education series, Celebrating LIFE and Our Coming of Age, which will present a variety of topics important to all of us as we age.
We welcome you to join us for one or all of our sessions as we seek to educate, discuss, and celebrate many aspects that are essential to healthy ageing.
