Understand the Relationship Between Nutrition and Aging

As the population in the United States ages, there are many opportunities to learn how to work with seniors in multiple settings in a way that supports quality of life. In the Certificate in Healthy Aging, you'll gain an overview of specific aspects of aging to provide a long-term foundation for treatment of the senior community and overall health during the later years of life.

You'll see how increasing scientific, clinical, and social interest helps us understand the relationship between nutrition and aging. You'll explore the characteristics of the healthy aging brain, and examine how cognitive function can be maintained into old age. The program also examines the ways physical activity can enhance well-being for seniors and uncovers the keys to longevity that allow some people to live to 100 years old. Finally, the program explores the role that intimacy and sexuality play in the health of seniors.

This certificate is designed for anyone working in the health care field, those who are interested in the topic, those who are working with the aging population, or anyone who wishes to prepare for a career in aging services or gerontology.
