n to the physical component of the program, the seniors are also able to develop relationships with local college students.

Resources for Seniors, Inc. (Wake County, N.C.) - The "Fit & Strong" program blends a cardiovascular, strength and flexibility program with a group problem-solving curriculum. The program is designed to help manage the symptoms of arthritis, develop confidence in the ability to exercise safely with arthritis and promote a commitment to lifestyle change. The program is 8-weeks long and meets three days a week for 90-minute sessions that include an education and discussion component. Before the end of the 8-week program, participants meet with the instructor to develop an individualized exercise contract that fosters ongoing maintenance of physical activity.

Traverse City Senior Center and the senior centers that received honorable mentions will have an opportunity to present their unique health program during an NCOA monthly Healthy Aging series webinar in May 2009.

To view the winning programs, learn more about how the programs can be implemented in other locations, and for an upcoming posting of webinar dates and times, please visit: www.ncoa.org.
