Len Kaye, professor of social work and director of the University of Maine’s Center on Aging, will share data-driven tips for living and aging well in the Pine Tree State. “Tips for aging well in Maine: What the research tells us” is designed for curious minds of all education levels and learners do not need to be enrolled in a University of Maine System program to attend.

The course is the first in a series of interactive events, called Leveraging the Flagship, that bring experts from across the University of Maine System to UMaine’s Portland Gateway on Fore Street. The $25, two-hour crash courses cover topics ranging from aquaculture to advanced materials needed to advance hydrogen energy.
