The Normal Aging Process: What to Expect and How to Slow It Down

Mondays, April 8 – May 13
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Instructor: Don Catino
Location: Congregational Church, Hopkinton, NH 1548 Hopkinton Rd, Hopkinton, NH 03229

We review normal aging changes throughout the human body: in the heart, lungs, brain, muscles, bones, joints, kidneys, digestive system, endocrine and sexual organs; plus eyes, ears and skin. This gives a better sense of what to expect with aging and what might be abnormal or a disease. We also review what is known about the aging process. There are Power Point presentations and handouts for each session and lots of time for questions.
