Health, the environment and other factors such as lifestyle have a great impact on overall quality of life.  Research shows that being healthy over our lifespan and healthy aging have a direct correlation.  We know physical activity/walking is one of the key ingredients in achieving this goal.  This webinar will feature the health benefits of being physically active as we age and the impact the environment has on aging.

· Health benefits of healthy aging and health across the lifespan
