Be Active Every Day! Celebrate active aging with the inaugural Go4Life® Month this September! The National Institute on Aging, in collaboration with the White House Conference on Aging, Go4Life Month encourages older adults nationwide to fit exercise into their daily lives every day.

Check out our free resources, including:

Exercise has many benefits for people of all ages—even older adults! Recent studies show that regular physical activity can improve mobility and reduce the risk of disability in older adults. Exercise also can reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other chronic conditions.

The Go4Life campaign from the National Institute on Aging at NIH encourages older adults to be more physically active to improve their health. Go4Life has sample exercises especially for older adults and motivational tools to help you find activities you enjoy, start exercising, and keep going.

Any questions? Visit our Go4Life Month website or e-mail go4life@nia.nih.gov.

How can the public obtain an invitation to your meeting.    We would like to bring up guardian abuse as a topic of discussion as this is a national problem.

Thank you.
