Just Keep Moving
As Dr. Kavanagh discusses in the Spring newsletter, strong social networks impart real health benefits which, studies have proven, are surprisingly contagious.
But what happens when your social network is made up by a group of like-minded fitness junkies?!
We can't help but be inspired by the athletes and community of the National Senior Games Association!
Founded during the fitness boom of the 1980's by a group of seven avid senior sportsmen and women, today, the National Senior Games Association is dedicated to fostering a community of healthy lifestyle among active adults.
Held every two years, the National Senior Games are a 20-sport competition that bring like-minded athletes over 50+ together from all over the country.
The 2022 competition just wrapped on May 23rd in Fort Lauderdale and the New York Times shared a great piece profiling athletes, who can clearly testify to the positive health effects of this very particular social network!

The Social Network
It goes without saying that most of our friendships and extended family relationships have taken a hit in the past few years.
So it should come as no surprise that the health benefits of friendship have been much in the news as our lives begin to bear a greater resemblance to a pre-COVID normal.
In our Spring newsletter, Dr. Kavanagh examines research on the health benefits of social networks.
