TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of
interest to Agers in Place Downtown ...
THE SKIN YOU’RE IN
Skin is the largest organ of the body. It plays a role in everything from heating and cooling, to protecting from injury, to manufacturing vital Vitamin D. Yet it’s easy to take it for granted. As we age, new layers of skin are formed more slowly than before, and are susceptible to conditions and ailments that should and can be treated for optimal health.
Our Tuesday Talk will present the basics on how to keep skin healthy as we get older. We will learn the signs of specific skin diseases and about the latest techniques for treating them. Hair and nails will also be part of the discussion. We’ll have plenty of time for questions.
