St. Irenaeus Health Ministry invites the public to come to their workshop on Monday, October 23, 2017, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. to learn about “Aging in Community” from guest speaker, Dr. Gail C. Farmer, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Health Science, and Director of Center of Disability Studies and Scholarship at California State University, Long Beach.  Dr. Farmer is an active 73 year-old who is wheelchair bound.  She is an academic scholar and continues to work both at the University and in the community.  She is an example of aging and living in her own home with the help of caregivers. A network of assistants and friends facilitate her active lifestyle.  She relies on her faith in God to transcend her challenges.  Come and be inspired by Dr. Farmer and learn how to successfully “Age in Community.”
