In-person Classes begin October 4

The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) is a comprehensive and fun approach to aging well that encourages adults age 55+ to take actions to enhance their health, financial well-being, social connectedness, and overall quality of life. Central to the AMP philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered and supported to cultivate health and longevity. The core curriculum covers ten topics:

Navigating Longer Lives: The Basics of Aging Mastery
Exercise and You
Healthy Eating and Hydration
Financial Fitness
Advance Planning
Healthy Relationships
Medication Management
Community Engagement
Falls Prevention

Classes meet on eleven Mondays, October 4 through December 13, 2021 from 10 am - 12 pm, Montana time. Classes are held in-person at Missoula Public Library, Cooper Room B -or- you may attend virtually using Zoom. The Missoula Public Library will be closed on Monday, October 11 in observance of Indigenous Peoples Day. This class will be held virtually on Zoom for all AMP participants.

The National Council on Aging requires participants to attend 7 out of the 10 classes listed above to graduate from the program. If you are unable to attend at least 7 out of the 10 classes, please reconsider registering for this program as seats are limited.

Pre-registration is required. An email confirmation with the Missoula Public Library details and the Zoom meeting information will be sent to registered participants prior to the session start date.

While AMP utilizes a number of different guest speakers on the various topics, the facilitator is the backbone of the program. Teresa Sacks, AMP Facilitator at MAS, presents the program.
