Around Christmas 2019 I formed an aging discussion group. We finally got organized and held our first meeting in January 2020 and a second meeting in February. The COVID-19 hit and we suspended our meetings.
In the fall of 2021 I taught an University of Alaska OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) class: The Advancing Science of Slowing Aging. The plan is for this to be an ongoing class series, teaching about how to use science to age better.
As a result of the class I resurrected the aging discussion group. Right now we are using zoom, but I hope to transition to in person meetings after COVID-19 abates but with a zoom link so others (non-local) can chip in.
When & where: Zoom meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Time will be announced to everyone on our email list.
Format: I talk for a bit about a piece of aging technology that I am keen on, and then we talk about it, or any other aging subject people want to discuss. As long as the group size remains small this will work, if it grows too much…not so well.
* 2/8/22 meeting. Topic: Enhanced external counterpulsation and why it might be useful in aging.
