In the year 2030 it is estimated that more than 20 percent of people will be 65 years of age or older. Individuals over the age of 65 have an average of two or more chronic conditions. With upcoming demographic changes, our health care costs will continue to increase if people do not begin to take more responsibility for their health now. Because of the increased prevelance of chronic disease, MSU Extension strives to educate Michigan residents on healthy lifestyle choices so as they age, they have a stronger health and are able to self-manage any health conditions that may arise.
