[March 02, 2017]  The Wellderly, as defined by Eric Topol, M.D., are exceptional individuals who live into their ninth decade and beyond without developing a significant medical condition.

The Scripps Research Institute launched the “Wellderly Study” in 2007 in hopes of unlocking the genetic secrets behind lifelong health. Research Chairman Michael Snyder, PhD states, “Most of the world’s scientists are studying disease, but what we really want to understand is what keeps us healthy. This is what the Wellderly Study is all about.”

The Cell magazine reports that a man named John Rawlings was part of the study. He is a 90 year old Indiana native and World War II veteran who started playing softball in his 70s and was inducted in the National Senior Softball Hall of Fame in 2009. He is also an avid reader. Research has found that those that keep themselves physically and mentally fit have a significantly lower risk for Alzheimer’s and coronary artery disease.

The Christian Village in Lincoln, is devoted to integrating Wellderly activities throughout the Lincoln area. Sixty is now the new Fifty and we believe that you can thrive as you age! And now, research has shown the more you focus on thriving, the longer you will live!

We want to kick off this new way of living in the Lincoln area with “The First Annual Logan County Wellderly Dance!” This event will be held at the Lincoln Park District Ballroom on March 4th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
