Regular physical activity, healthy eating, staying smoke-free, and staying socially connected are essential for living healthier lives. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs promote community-based health promotion, disease prevention programs for older adults throughout the Commonwealth.

Our health promotion programs and workshops give participants the skills and confidence to manage their health and either prevent or delay chronic conditions and live healthier, more active lives.
