The old adage “a little knowledge goes a long way”, is a fitting descriptor of the benefits gained through participation in lifelong education and learning opportunities. For older adults in particular, research points to multiple benefits, which include a better understanding of the elements that contribute to successful aging, stimulation of mental and physical activity, support for life changes and personal renewal, and a connection to the broader community. All of these gains result in better overall health – in all aspects, from socio-economic, to physical and cognitive health.
In the spirit of supporting older adults to age successfully, the GWSA Education Series have been developed to address meaningful and relevant topics of interest. Twice a year, we provide a six week education series and all sessions are offered free of charge. The Spring 2020 Series has just been announced.
Come for the pleasure of learning, gain knowledge and meet new people. For registration information, please contact the GWSA Community Support Services office at 519-837-5696.
