Odyssey, Mini Med School: Aging Well, What We Can Learn From Preventive Medicine

Offered in cooperation with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Department of Health, Behavior and Society

Program coordinators: Lawrence Cheskin, MD, and Susan M. Hannum, PhD
This series of lectures, held on two consecutive Saturdays, examines aging as a lifelong, multidimensional human experience. Students will explore aging from the perspective of health and health-related behaviors. Lectures will focus on the experience of chronic illness and how this affects, and is affected by, the aging process. Germane to the illness experience, we will present research from clinicians at the front line of preventive medicine. Participants will come away from the lecture series with a better understanding of how lifestyle and relationship factors can improve physical and psychological health, thus reducing the risk and burden associated with disease and debility in later life.

A complete schedule of lectures is in the fall course catalog.
