Geriatric Seminars


Promoting Healthy Aging and Healthy Community in Nevada

Geriatric Seminar-Aging Mastery Program

The upcoming NIHAN Geriatric Seminar Series provides the Aging Mastery Program (AMP) in collaboration with our proud partner, Nevada Senior Services (NSS). 

The Aging Mastery is a nationally acknowledged community education program developed by the National Council on Aging


The Aging Mastery Program is a comprehensive and fun approach to living that celebrates the gift of longevity. Central to the Aging Mastery philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce positive results and that people can be empowered to cultivate health and longevity. The program encourages mastery- developing behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security, and overall well-being.


The goal of the 12-week NIHAN Geriatric Seminar Series is to foster health aging for older adults, in order to create a healthy and age-friendly geriatric community in Nevada.

For the program enrollment, limited spots available.

Core curriculum textbook will be provided to older adults & caregivers who are age 55 & older and sign up for the enrollment of the seminars by March 24.
