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 new lecture series that will feature 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 spring lectures will be presented via Zoom webinar, and the fall lectures are planned as in-person events. Recordings of the lectures will be available on the Innovations in Healthy Aging website for later viewing.

Awe is a positive emotion associated with wonder, creativity, and generosity. This lecture will describe research on awe and its mental and physical health benefits and will summarize a study on “awe walks” that we conducted in older adults.

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.
