2016 Active Living Expo

Tallahassee seniors can learn about Florida State University’s (FSU) Institute for Successful Longevity (ISL) at the Active Living Expo on Sept. 15 and 16 at the Tallahassee Senior Center.

Visitors to the expo can meet some of the institute’s affiliated faculty and graduate students and learn about their research into how individuals can remain active and engaged in their lives and their communities as they grow older.

They also can learn about opportunities to assist with the institute’s research projects across a variety of fields.

“ISL applies an interdisciplinary approach to its research,” said Neil Charness, the William G. Chase Professor of Psychology at FSU and the institute’s director. “We work to discover causes of age-related functional and cognitive decline and to translate those discoveries into practices and interventions that can improve the lives of millions of Americans.”

Faculty and graduate students from the institute will talk about their work at the Expo on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 5 to 8 p.m., and on Friday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.. The Tallahassee Senior Center is at 1400 N. Monroe St.
