Understanding the changes expected with normal aging will allow us to both anticipate future needs as well as recognize changes that should prompt a visit to the doctor. We will review this, as well as take a rational approach to the most recent research findings about preventive approaches including diet, exercise, vitamins, and a few common medical conditions. There is no cost to attend Albany Guardian Society programs. RSVP at (518) 434-2140 or e-mail us at director@albanyguardiansociety.org. or visit: http://www.albanyguardiansociety.org/spring16catalog.php
