Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will present Secrets to Active Aging as part of the Health and Wellness Series at Darien Library Monday, Jan. 9, at 10 a.m.

In this program, which is free-of-charge and open to the public, participants will learn why physical activity is so vital to healthy aging, and how we can incorporate it into our daily lives, no matter what our fitness level.

The program addresses the needs of adults over the age of 50 and will be presented by Julienne Camhi. Camhi is a certified personal trainer and health fitness specialist with Darien's Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County.
