'The Art and Science of Aging' Fairbanks summit, April 7-8

How to stay healthy in Interior Alaska for those age 50 and older is the focus of “Fairbanks 50+: The Art and Science of Aging,” a two-day summit April 7 and 8 at the Pioneer Park Civic Center. The event aims to inspire a healthy path to growing older, according to a press release from organizer Foundation Health Partners, a program of the Community Health Improvement Plan for Senior Care. “The better we understand what it takes to support our goals as we age, the more likely we are to enjoy wider choices and fewer surprises. We also reach out for resources to help our aging family members or friends, and find we need support that can be difficult to get. You will find that help here.”

Presentation sessions will focus on a wide variety of health and social services and education suited for both public and professional audiences, and everyone is welcome to attend. Exhibits and displays will be showcase resources for programs and services that support healthy aging in Fairbanks, along with an Alaska Health Fair screening clinic. A facilitated meet and great with government leaders and an art event may also be in the offerings, planners say, with details still coming together.

The summit is Friday, April 7 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with an evening event yet to be announced, and continue Saturday, April 8, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. No cost to attend.

There is still time to join as an exhibitor or presenter. Contact Carol.Anthony@foundtionhealth.org or 907-458-5545 for more information.
