We offer many events each year — some for all ages, some created just for older adults. Most are free, and all are a great way to connect with other people!
Innovations in Healthy Aging Lecture Series
We are pleased to announce a lecture series that features prominent scholars from the University of Arizona and beyond speaking about topics related to aging.
Each lecture is free and open to the public. The lectures are presented in a hybrid format, online via Zoom, and in person at the Health Sciences Innovation Building on the University of Arizona campus. Recordings of the lectures will be available on the Innovations in Healthy Aging website for later viewing.
Join us on October 4, 2023, for “Vibrant Brains That Last a Lifetime ” by Roberta Diaz Brinton, Ph.D. The lecture will take place at the Health Sciences Innovation Building, 1670 E. Drachman St., Tucson, AZ 85721, and will also be live-streamed.
Complimentary parking will be available in lot 2012, adjacent to the building.
Aging and the Arts
The Aging and the Arts program at the University of Arizona uses poetry, music, dance, visual arts, guided movement and more to promote healthy aging. Our events are for older adults as well as health care workers, researchers and others interested in how the humanities can promote greater well-being for an aging population.
