Pitt’s Center For Healthy Aging Invites All Senior Citizens To Participate In Annual Talent Show

PITTSBURGH, October 5, 2006 — Singers, musicians, dancers, quilters and comedians age 50 and older are invited to participate in the annual talent show sponsored by the Center for Healthy Aging (CHA) at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, the McKeesport State Health Improvement Plan, and the McKeesport Hospital Foundation. “The Ageless Spirit – A Showcase of Golden Talent,” will be held at 1 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Palisades at 501 Water St. in McKeesport, Pa.

“Staying active is one of the keys to healthy aging, and one way that we can promote an active lifestyle is by showcasing the talents of our area’s older population,” said Connie Bayles, Ph.D., program director at the CHA. “We have made this an annual event to encourage seniors to remain active in the community by showing off their hobbies and talents. Our hope is that these talented seniors can help inspire others to do the same.”

Senior citizens from throughout Allegheny County are invited to participate in the talent show, and the event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information and to register your talent, please contact the Center for Healthy Aging at 412-624-3217.

The CHA is a Prevention Research Center, one of 33 such centers across the United States funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CHA specializes in research, education and community outreach activities and partners with many local, state and national organizations.
