Cal State Northridge faculty will join members of the community on Wednesday, Oct. 28, in a daylong seminar designed to encourage healthy living and a more active lifestyle among senior citizens.
“Senior Passport to Golden Years” will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at 9501 Balboa Blvd. in Northridge.
The event is being organized by North Hills West, Northridge East and West and Granada Hills South Neighborhood Councils and is supported by CSUN’s Institute for Community Health and Wellbeing.
Speakers expected to attend include Dr. Arnold Bresky, author of “Brain Tune-Up;” Joyce Gilbert, director of CSUN’s Marilyn Magaram Center; Louis Rubino from CSUN’s Institute of Community Health and Wellbeing; Sabrina Rife, gerontology coordinator and Senior Lead Officer Janine Angeles from the LAPD’s Devonshire division.
The Institute of Community Health and Wellbeing launched this summer and offers healthy lifestyle support to the campus and community. The new institute hopes to offer services such as physical therapy, speech and hearing, social work services and several others.
“All these services are independent of each other, but we’re trying to bring it together so there is a ‘one-stop shop’ for them all,” said Louis Rubino, professor of health sciences and member of the institute. “This is the first time the institute is going to a public forum and we’re hoping to do this a lot more this year. Not just gerontology, but the rest of the services that the institute can provide.”
The forum will feature a continental breakfast and a catered lunch. For more information or to RSVP call (818) 892-8899 or contact symposium organizers via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
