The region’s first-ever Aging Mastery Program will hold graduation ceremonies from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, April 7 at Tri-County Mental Health Services.
The program was created four years ago by the National Council on Aging to provide tools for the nation’s growing numbers of older adults. Although its strategies focusing on a positive outlook about growing older have received widespread praise, the class that began here in January is the first in Greater Kansas City.
Led by Becky Franklin, Older adult educator for Tri-County Mental Health Services, and Paula Zigmond, program coordinator for Clay County Senior Services, the 10-week course will celebrate by graduating its first 17 students.
The event will be held in the second floor conference room of the Northland Human Services Building, 3100 NE 83rd Street, Kansas City. For more information or to RSVP for the graduation, contact Paula Zigmond at 816-455-4800 or e-mail: [email protected].
