Henderson, Nev. – It’s never too late to take on new challenges or find a new passion in life. The Henderson Senior Summit will provide attendees with the information and tools they’ll need to forge a new path.

The event’s keynote presentation, “Living in the Zone,” will be given by Heather Haslam, wellness director at the Sanford Center for Aging at the University of Nevada, Reno. Haslam leads the center’s Community Wellness programs and facilitates self-management programs for diabetes, chronic disease and chronic pain.
