Vitality in Aging Contest

Do you know someone who views aging as an opportunity? Someone over 65 who is thriving and aging with vitality?

Yes?  Please nominate yourself or someone you know for the 2013 Vitality in Aging campaign! Fill out an entry by Monday, April 29, 2013. Vitality in Aging candidates who are selected will be featured in NYIT’s Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics’ Older Americans Month Tribute.

Finalists will be highlighted in a university- wide exhibit during Older Americans Month (May 2013). They will also be featured on the Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics’ website, so that all of us can learn from them.

  • Commit to a healthy lifestyle?
  • Maintain an active, involved, and productive lifestyle?
