  1. Lee – Here’s an Aging Academy podcast idea that’s highly relevant and informative for seniors: Nine Ways to Boost Seniors’ Health and Well-being. This idea reflects my recent book, Choose Better, Live Better – Nine Healthy Choices that Nurture Body, Mind, and Spirit. Seniors comprise the target audience. The book makes the scientific case that these simple, practical, evidence-based lifestyle choices can help seniors extend their Quality of Lifespan—live better, live longer. I identified these choices following a life-threatening injury on the Pacific Crest Trail at age 66. Since my recovery, I’ve tested these choices under demanding conditions on 11,800 miles of long-distance hiking and cycling adventures. These lifestyle choices work! I’d like to engage, inspire, and uplift seniors in your podcast audience with engaging personal stories and brief examples of the science that illustrate the power of these healthy choices to help seniors age gracefully. Please contact me at 303.819.6726 or send me an email at so we can chat. Thanks for your consideration! Best wishes, Alan Carpenter
