Aging with quality of life is discussed in a series of meetings at the Maria Antonia Center in USP

                 Experts discuss aging in different approaches, focusing on the quality of life. The event is free and open to the public.


The Maria Antonia Center at USP presents, in a partnership with the Program “USP Open to Senior Citizens,” the series of free meetings Conversas sobre o envelhecer (Talks on aging). Participation is open to the population, with no need for a link with the University.


The meetings are monthly, on Tuesdays, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


Dr. Egídio Dorea, the coordinator of the program, points out that, with the increase of the longevity of the population and with a different style of life of previous generations, aging has a new meaning. “It is necessary to re-signify life within a new scenario with technological changes. For this, we need to discuss how to live more with quality of life. ”
