Get Inspired about Long Life and the Possibility of Staying on the Hill

“Creating Healthy Communities” is the topic of the second symposium that Capitol Hill Village will host on October 25 as part of the Greater Capitol Hill for Long Life Series. The program will be from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Hill Center.

“This symposium will really inspire people about the potential for community-based health care and how we can create it on Capitol Hill,” said Executive Director Molly Singer. “Bits and pieces of this is happening elsewhere in the United States and in the world; we need to bring it home to Capitol Hill, and this event is the beginning of making that happen.”

The series schedule that will roll out over the next six months is intended to bring together community members and stakeholders from various sectors to learn about best practices in designing a community for longevity. In turn, community members and stakeholders will be working together to create a plan to lead Capitol Hill and its nearby neighborhoods (NOMA, Southeast Waterfront) to become the greatest place in the world to live a long life.

Wise Guys discuss Blue Days

CHV's Wise Guys Mens Group and MedStar Washington Hospital Center had a symposium on October 5 highlighting depression and anxiety for men. The program included a very thorough overview of depression issues as well as break out groups and sharing among the attendees. Attendees shared feelings about mental health and how depression impacts the community as well as ways to build a stronger community network of support among men. Also a MedStar dietitian discussed healthy eating and how nutrition and fitness can deter depression.

Thanks to Sig Cohen, Mike Grace, Tom Zaniello who organized the event. And to Buck Waller and Bill Matuszeski who were hands on help for the day. Presentations are available on the bottom right hand corner of this screen. For more information about Wise Guys, contact Tom Zaniello at: tzaniello@nku.edu
