“Are you aging by design?” The Aging by Design 2016 Summit and Expo seeks to answer that question by providing invaluable information to help you shape the life you want to live and help you plan for the future.

Register now to attend the Summit and Expo on Saturday, April 30, featuring keynote speakers Coach Vince and Barbara Dooley. Coach Dooley is one of the winningest coaches in college football history and a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. He led the University of Georgia Bulldogs for 25 years and won six SEC championships and a national championship. Barbara has been married to this legend for almost 50 years and is a well-respected author, radio and television personality, non-profit volunteer, career woman and dynamic speaker. Together, the Dooley’s exemplify the importance of living a healthy lifestyle that includes nutrition, recreation and connecting with others.
