Increasing Strength for Older Adults

Maintaining muscle mass is an essential part of supporting strength and power, reducing risk of falls and bone fractures, and supporting a healthy weight, but muscle loss is common as we age. Join WMEC’s registered dietitian for this presentation which will address causes of muscle loss and the specifics of how to make and maintain muscles through eating and exercise. Materials will be provided by the Mass. Executive Office of Elder Affairs.
