Senior Health Forum: The Aging Bladder: Friend or Foe?


TOPIC: The Aging Bladder: Friend or Foe?


Older adults, both men and women, often find themselves with bladder/urinary issues.  Sometimes these are “trivial” and may have some minor impact on lifestyle.  Sometimes they are sever enough to significantly interfere with daily activities and sleep. Learn about the range of symptoms, when to discuss them with your physician, and the many new and easier ways of dealing with them.

You may purchase a ticket that includes a deluxe boxed lunch (sandwich, salad, homemade chips, and cookie with coffee, tea, and water) for $15, or you may purchase a ticket for the lecture only for $5. Lunch tickets must be reserved/paid for by Thursday June 7th at 9AM.
