Aging Vibrantly by the Book
What's the most important ingredient to healthy aging? Ask Karen Kansler, RN, MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital's community outreach nurse and arthritis navigator, and she'll tell you, "A willingness to learn and approach things from a new perspective - to see the brighter, funnier side of things - all these have positive health benefits," she says. "There are literally thousands of wonderful books, magazines, online publications - you name it - that offer great advice about living longer and feeling good."
Better Health by the Book is an every-other-month book club that will explore a wide range of health and life-related topics for today's health-conscious, busy consumer. You'll get the best advice out there - everything from cutting-edge medical options to over-the-top motivational advice. "Sharing what you've learned in a group setting allows you to make lifelong friends and share best-bet tips for improving your life and your health," says Karen.
Our Next Featured Book
