Location: Chicago Theological Seminary and Online

NORC at the University of ChicagoNORC and the University of Chicago are hosting an upcoming all-day event on Thursday, October 20th in Hyde Park at the Chicago Theological Seminary: The Symposium on Healthy Aging. Registration is free.

Drs. William Dale and Patricia Boyle will be keynote speakers, and there will also be three panels that cover cutting edge research on all things healthy aging. The topics discussed will span multidimensional factors in aging, such as physical activity, cognition, social connections, and cultural contexts. Those attending this event will have the opportunity to participate in optional health assessments—for example, sense of smell, walking speed, resilience, and more!

This event is made possible by a generous gift from Maurine Kornfeld—an alumna of the University of Chicago and many-time national swimming champion who celebrated her 100th birthday in the pool last year. Event co-sponsors include: the Supporting Healthy Aging Resources & Education (SHARE) Network, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Center on Healthy Aging Behaviors and Longitudinal Investigations (CHABLIS), the Institute for Translational Medicine, the University of Chicago Department of Sociology, and NORC at the University of Chicago.
