Healthy Aging Campaign info from the Website

The Healthy Aging® Web site is the official site of the Healthy Aging® Campaign — a national ongoing health promotion designed to broaden awareness of the positive aspects of aging and to provide information and inspiration for adults, age 50+, to improve their physical, mental, social, and financial fitness.

Keys to Healthy Aging:

  • Physical Fitness
  • Social Wellness
  • Financial Fitness
  • Mental Wellness

Healthy Aging® Month is an annual observance month designed to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. The main objective of Healthy Aging® Month for 2004 is to encourage local level Healthy Aging® events.

Event Suggestions:
  • Stage an event and have an elected official proclaim the national month -- generating publicity for your event.

  • Create a Healthy Aging® Open House.

  • Create an Intergenerational Program.

  • Set up a Healthy Aging® Walk-a-Thon.

  • Give away free Healthy Aging® Materials.

  • Sponsor a senior athletic event, such as a mall-walk, 5K run, or family fun bicycle ride.

  • Promote and run a reading night at your local library. Invite local older adult celebrities to read passages from inspirational books at the event, and promote the event by advertising the celebrity participation.
