Never Too Late - November 2022


Wisdom Circles

Wisdom Circles are a safe place where we share life experiences and

celebrate the achievements of aging.


De-Stress Your Environment and Your Life! November 30 | 5:30 – 6:30pm | In person and livestreamed About this event In this lecture, Drs. Sternberg and Crocker will discuss a framework for embedding whole person/integrative health into the built environment, starting with a conversation about how each began to work in the area of integrative health and the built environment. Audience members will learn about the importance of lifestyle in health and wellbeing, and the 7 “core areas” of integrative health. They will give examples of each of the 7 core areas and will discuss how the built environment can be designed to foster and support each domain. Both experts will touch on the importance of integrative health and designing the built environment to support optimal health and resilience post-COVID. Finally, Drs. Sternberg and Crocker will share their views on where the field is going in the future and some practical take-home messages to help audience members incorporate these principles into their everyday lives, to optimize their health and wellbeing.
