Stress and aging topics at upcoming St. Rose program

(Great Bend, Kas.) - Stress and its relationship to aging will be the topic at the next Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA) presentation at St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center.

The interactive televideo program is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 16 in the St. Dominic Room at St. Rose. The one-hour session is free and open to the public.

We have learned that stress throughout our lifetime can accelerate certain aspects of aging, said Moira Mulhern, PHD, who will lead the discussion.

Mulhern also noted she will touch on the science behind the ways that stress impacts aging, along with practical ways to address these issues.

Mulhern is co-founder and chief executive officer of Turning Point: the Center for Hope and Healing, which provides speakers for the events.
