How Medications Affect Your Aging Brain and Body
Join us for the May presentation in the ongoing community lecture series, “The New Normal: Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll in Retirement,” cosponsored by the PPACG Area Agency on Aging, PILLAR Institute for Lifelong Learning, and the UCCS Aging Center. Our lectures invite you to explore the reinvention of life after retirement.
Older adults are living longer and taking more medications, both prescription and over-the-counter. Medications are essential to prevent illness, disability, and death and are useful to improve quality of life. However, medication side effects and drug interactions can cause physical and mental complications. This interactive presentation is for those interested in learning about the effects of medications on the aging brain and body. The speaker will discuss medication benefits, metabolism of medications in older versus young bodies, medication interactions, and improved confidence in medication self-management.
Judy Scott, Ph.D., R.N., Assistant Professor of Nursing in the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences at UCCS, is a nursing educator with a special interest in helping older adults age in place as independently as possible, including medication management.
