Each session of the workshop is very interactive allowing participants to build confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives through mutual support and success. Workshops are 2.5 hours long and held once per week over a seven week period of time with plenty of socializing breaks built into each session.

Aging Mastery Program (AMP)
Aging Mastery is a comprehensive and fun approach to living that celebrates the gift of longevity. Central to the Aging Mastery philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered to cultivate health and longevity. Equally important, the program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security, enhanced well-being, and increased connections to communities. The path to mastery is entirely individual. Individuals set their own goals and create their own pathways to these goals, opening the door to autonomy and purpose in the process. Each week will have a guest speaker cover a topic from the curriculum.

This project was funded in part by an award to the Missouri Association on Area Agencies on Aging through a grant from Prevention and Public Health Fund given by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living.
