Happy Spring – Here’s the March 2017 Seniors Taking Charge

It’s March, and this month’s Seniors Taking Charge newsletter is full of ideas to eat well, be active, and stay healthy. For many older adults, cooking for one or two can seem like a waste of time and money. We’re sharing tips to make it easier to cook for one or two, save time, and decrease waste. Also, we’re talking about the importance of warming up and cooling down for exercise, as well as how to prevent heart attacks and strokes. We also talk about the importance of keeping an updated list of medications (prescription and over-the-counter), supplements, and creams or ointments so that your doctors can help you avoid drug interactions. You can download your copy of the March newsletter here.
