Ageing Actively in Mind, Body and Spirit will be one of the topics of discussion when the Ministry of Social Care, Constituency Empowerment and Community Development teams up with The Productivity Council and Seven Seas Ltd. to host a seminar on active ageing, for persons 40 years and over.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, June 8, at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed, in The City, beginning at 8:00 a.m., with free health checks and a display of health supplements. From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. there will be a number of interactive sessions on various topics, including nutrition, physiotherapy and productivity after retirement. Two prominent seniors will also reveal their strategies to ensuring a healthy ageing process.

The initiative is one of the activities of the annual National Senior Games, and precedes the Track and Field Meet which comes off at the National Stadium on Saturday, June 29.

To register, interested persons must contact the Ministry of Social Care at 310-1610 or 310-1811, no later than Friday, May 31. Registration will be based on a first come first served basis due to the limited number of spaces.
