A Paper from the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine

This manuscript is written on what successful aging may mean to the average American. Although it was written three years ago, many of the themes still apply. You’ll need Adobe Reader on your computer (if you don’t have it, you can download it for free here). When you click on the link to the paper it should download the paper to your computer. I’m actually not sure whether you can access it without a subscription, so if you can’t get to it, please let me know. Franklin & Tate 2008
