- We are a youth-obsessed culture
Dr. Noelle C. Nelson: Although we are a youth-obsessed culture, the reality is more and more of us are living into our 90s and beyond.
The question we need to ask is: “What can we do right now so our later years will be the best they can be?”
If we don’t answer this question (and face the fact that all of us will get older).
All around us, there are folks in their 90s and 100s living dynamic, thriving, inspiring lives.

Helen Dugan, over 80, who teaches at the karate studio she founded for special needs kids that focuses on their strengths not their disabilities.
Joe Aiello, at about 90, who raised over $32,000 for local Boy Scouts programs by rappelling down 21 stories of a building.
Mary Bochanis, over 90, who is the longest-serving Red Cross volunteer in its history, having served for the last 73 years.
A psychologist, speaker and author of
