HONOLULU — The UH Mānoa School of Social Work and its alumni and friends continue their Summer Forum Program with "Secrets of Successful Aging" featuring Dr. Michael Cheang of the UH Mānoa Center on Aging. The free public program will be held on Wednesday, June 30, at 1 p.m. in the UH Mānoa Korean Studies Auditorium.

Cheang will explore whether successful aging is a myth or reality, and answer questions such as: What is successful aging? Does having a fat retirement benefits package guarantee a wonderful life in later years? How can one plan to age successfully? The session discusses the keys to successful aging provided by the National Institute of Aging, and the implications for social work practice.

The summer forum program is sponsored as a university and community service by the UH Mānoa School of Social Work to call attention to vulnerable life stages and conditions that call for greater public enlightenment and constructive policy formulation.
