Lee is director of MTSU’s inaugural Positive Aging Consortium, a one-day conference set from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, June 10, at the Miller Education Center on Bell Street.

The event is designed to examine societal attitudes toward aging and how they affect older adults’ ability to live their most productive, fulfilling lives.

“We’re not really thinking of this period of life where it’s a decline, and you’re either out cruising the Mediterranean or you’re living in decreased health and things are not good,” Lee said. “The reality is that most people live in between.”

Topics to be examined by MTSU faculty members include maintaining healthy brain activity, improving physical condition, financial decisions and nutritious meals.
