SAIL Educational Event
Registration is closed - Event is full
This informative and enlightening workshop will begin with a lecture to help us understand the concept of homeostenosis and how it manifests in life as well as ten things we should all know about normal aging. Dr. Eastman's presentation will help us understand that aging doesn't mean disease, nor does growing older mean we will become frail. In small groups, we'll explore and dismantle some of the myths about aging that we've subscribed to over the years. We'll also work on identifying the various topics we are interested in exploring further.
Dr. Alexis Eastman is an associate professor in the Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. She serves as Director of Clinical Operations for Primary and Specialty Care in the Division, and as Medical Director of the Badger Prairie Health Center. Dr. Eastman has been named multiple times to the "Madison's Top Doctors" list.
This workshop is part of SAILing into the future! The workshops are designed to introduce you to the critical components of an aging plan and are interactive sessions led by local professionals.
