TED Talk Tuesday

Join us on Tuesday, March 26 at 1:30 p.m. for another in the program series we are calling TED Talk Tuesday.  What happens on TED Talk Tuesday? We view a TED talk—a short, informative video presentation— followed by a guided discussion with staff from Brookdale Senior Living of Faribault. TED Talks are free and open to public; pre-register by calling 332-7357.

This month we will view and discuss “Physical Wellness”.  After a career as a dentist and at the age of 85, Dr. Charles Eugster started a personal fitness program that led to his being a Masters Athlete for Great Britain.  His inspiration?  “You are never too old to try something new.” The evidence is clear—physical activity can reduce the risk of chronic disease and can make people feel better, function better, and sleep better.
