Lecture series addresses multigenerational relationships and quality of life issues


January 25, 2006

Sun City residents will have the opportunity to learn how to age successfully and examine trends in multigenerational relationships when the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Arizona State University presents its lecture series “Caring for Self and Others.” The series will focus on multigenerational relationships, long-term marriages and the physical changes experienced during the life cycle. The lecture series begins Thursday, Feb 2.

ASU professors Doug Kelley and Vince Waldron will lecture on such issues as trends in contemporary society, grandparenting, and the challenges and opportunities of long-term marriages. Jeri Pounds, a nurse practitioner at ASU’s West campus, will discuss physical changes during aging.

“Change associated with aging affects the way we view ourselves and the way we view others,” said Kelley. “As such, in order to keep ourselves and our relationships healthy, it’s important for us to keep learning and growing each step of the way.”
