WAUSAU — A one-day educational workshop providing seniors the ability to grow and connect to resources and opportunities in and around Marathon County will be held in May.

All Things Senior! will be held May 20 on the Wausau campus of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, formerly UWMC.

The day begins with humorist Wisconsin Public Radio personality, Zorba Paster, a senior himself.

Session topics throughout the day include understanding vitamin and supplements, adaptive gardening for seniors, chair yoga, making social connections, healthy eating on a budget and smart technology. Participants can register for three classes, which also includes a boxed lunch.

Closing speaker Betsy Abramson, from the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging, will deliver her message on pervasive ageism in society, its impact on health and how important a positive image of aging in Wisconsin is to overall better health for seniors.

The cost is $25 per person. Scholarship opportunities are available. Registration opens on April 1. For more information, visit uwmc.uwc.edu/community/continuing-ed/50-plus or call Continuing Education at 715-261-6294.
