Aging Across the Lifespan

In October 2020, the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging launched the “Aging Across the Life Span” series of webinars to answer community questions about how adults of all ages can live longer, healthier lives. The webinars started with advice for young people, aged 20-30 years-old, and will finish with advice for older adults aged 65+ in fall 2021. The premise of these panel discussions is to cut through the noise and abundance of health and wellness tips to provide clear recommendations for healthy aging in adults young and old.

CSU faculty members from the College of Health and Human Sciences serve as panelists for the series, including:

Allyson Brothers, an assistant professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies who researches the promotion of healthy aging across the lifespan

Michelle Foster, an associate professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition who researches obesity and metabolic dysfunction

Gloria Luong, an assistant professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies who researches social and emotional aspects of aging

Rick Perry, a teaching faculty member in the Department of Health and Exercise Science who specializes in health and wellness behaviors

All questions surrounding diet, nutrition, fitness, mental health and general well-being are welcome. Questions can be submitted by emailing healthyaging@colostate.edu.
