Encouraging Active and Rewarding Lives

In a continuing partnership with Maryland Public Television (MPT) and Maryland Access Point (MAP) to promote healthy and independent living, we have a new slate of segments for 2018. We ask you help us promote these segments via word of mouth, your websites/social media, and other means of media.

These segments will be LIVE on MPT and afterward uploaded to our Youtube channel here:

As we continue to prepare a schedule for the upcoming segments, I will forward information for the next segment about a week or two in advance to disseminate. Attached is a photo used to promote the segment, a link to the Facebook event, and details of the event.
