A Message From Dr. Chris

Welcome to Active LivingSM! We are excited to bring you this program designed specifically for The Academy, A Merrill Gardens Community residents. We want to help you learn how to age in healthy ways and have fun doing it. As a physician, I know that the single most important prescription I can write for my patients is for increasing physical activity. No matter your age or limitations, increasing your level of activity will improve your quality of life dramatically. I encourage you to give it a try, and I know that you will enjoy the chance to learn new skills and make new friends along the way.

Sincerely,
