Aging Mastery Program

The UW-Madison Division of Extension in Lafayette, Green, and Iowa Counties will be offering an innovative new ten-class health and wellness program to aging adults. The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and has been successful at helping older adults build their own playbook for aging well.

AMP is a fun and innovative educational program that empowers participants to embrace their gift of longevity by spending more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others. The program encourages mastery—developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that lead to improved health, stronger economic security, enhanced well-being, and increased societal participation.

Class topics include:

  • Navigating Longer Lives
  • Exercise
  • Sleep
  • Healthy Eating and Hydration
  • Financial Fitness
  • Medication Management
  • Advance Planning
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Falls Prevention
  • Community Engagement

The ten-class series will be held over five weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays, September 29 through October 29, 11:00am-noon.  Rather than meeting in person, the classes will be offered via Zoom and participants will be able to connect via computer or phone.  Registrations will be accepted through September 25 so materials and connection information can be provided to participants before the first session.
