Healthy Aging Month
September 1 – September 30 CDT
Healthy Aging Month, celebrated in September and sponsored by the American Academy of Opthalmology, is an annual observance designed to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older.
Healthy Aging Month highlights the month’s mission which is to encourage local level Healthy Aging events that promote taking personal responsibility for one’s health – physically, socially, mentally or financially. Healthy Aging Month was first introduced when the baby boomers were about to turn 50.
