Next Club Wednesday, February 5th

By Ifrat Muller: Club Wednesday had an outstanding start to the New Year. Dr. Rajasehar Buddhavarapu, Director of Geriatrics and Palliative Care, White Plains Hospital spoke about 80s is the New 60s. With the advances in fighting infections, methods in preventing heart attacks and strokes, life expectancy has increased about ten years since 1970. He said that the fastest growing segment of population in the United States is above 85 and preserving an active lifestyle is a priority, that healthy aging includes physical activity three or four times a week, mental, functional, nutritional and spiritual elements. It was suggested that the aging do whatever they can anytime and perhaps add yoga, meditation and stretching. He commented on pain management, whether to treat or not to treat and the use of narcotics and medication. He concluded by saying that although there are no specific therapies proven to prevent aging there is much we can do to age gracefully.

Club Wednesday will continue to have a variety of programs of interest on the first Wednesday of every month this year February through May.

On February 5th, Club Wednesday will begin in the JCCH library at 11:00AM with Shari Baum, WJCS leading a discussion of Current Events followed by a buffet luncheon in the Reception Room at noon and our Atidat Ami Rabbinic intern Barbara Paris will speak at 12:30PM.Club Wednesday is sponsored by Sisterhood and is open at no charge to all with leisure time. Please note Club Wednesday on your calendar and be with us for a very pleasant and enjoyable few hours of social activity.
