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

Centro Universitário Maria Antonia - 07/10/2019

                 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. ”
