Getting older is not for the weak.  Diet and lifestyle can, to an extent, slow physiological aging by preserving lean tissue and strength.  This talk will review the role of nutrition and exercise in preventing and reversing age-related loss of muscle mass and function.  Dr. Beiseigel will discuss recommendations and considerations for practice and future research.
