WellPATH believes in providing resources that will enhance your quality of life and bring you the latest health and wellness information. These resources are for you to research at your own discretion. The Joint Health Management Board of Fresno Unified School District does not favor or endorse any of the listed resources.
On August 2, the Joint Health Management Board (JHMB), along with representatives from the WellPATH Program and the District’s Benefit Office provided a 2-hour workshop with information on the following key topics:
Retiree Benefits Program Overview
Wellness & Additional Resources
Medical News Today – Social Activity in Your 60s May Lower Dementia Risk by 12%: New research over a 28-year follow-up period finds significant evidence that frequent social contact at the age of 60 can lower the risk of developing dementia later on.
US News – Take a New View of Aging: The way you view aging can affect how well you manage stress. Older people who see aging negatively have stronger (negative) emotional reactions to day-to-day stresses, while such events have little effect on the moods of adults who are more positive about getting older. Their sunny outlook acts as a buffer against little annoyances.
Kaiser Permanente – Wellness Video: Fall Prevention Tips for Seniors: In this 3-part video, seniors get helpful strategies for preventing falls. After George breaks his hip in a fall, see how he and his wife take steps to improve their balance and fall-proof their home.
WebMD: How Aging Affects Your Immune System: Does it seem like you get sick more than you did when you were younger. When you are under the weather, does it take you longer to feel good again? Immunity — your body’s defense system — tends to get weaker with age. “Just as you probably can’t run as fast as you used to in your 20s, your immune system doesn’t work as well as it used to,” says Aaron E. Glatt, MD, chairman of the department of medicine at South Nassau Communities Hospitals. But fear not — at least not much.
Vaccines.gov: Which vaccines are recommended for adults age 65 and older: Vaccines are especially important for older adults. As you get older, your immune system weakens and it can be more difficult to fight off infections. You’re more likely to get diseases like the flu, pneumonia, and shingles — and to have complications that can lead to long-term illness, hospitalization, and even death.If you have an ongoing health condition — like diabetes or heart disease — getting vaccinated is especially important. Vaccines can protect you from serious diseases (and related complications) so you can stay healthy as you age. Getting vaccinated can help keep you, your family, and your community healthy.
Stay Active with AgeWellFresno: Joining a group keeps people engaged, happy, and healthy. There are many senior groups in Fresno; from volunteering, to socializing, learning, and being physically active there are groups to meet a wide variety of needs in later life.
Migraines are more than just bad headaches — they can sometimes be a sign of problems with your nervous system. People who get migraines usually have strong, throbbing pain on one side of their head.
Most people feel the pain in their temples or behind their eye or ear. They can cause some people to see spots or flashing lights. Migraines can also cause upset stomach, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can happen any time of day, though they often start in the morning.

From the video – “Cookbooks like the ‘National Institute of Health: Deliciously Healthy Dinners Keep the Beat’ is a great place to start. In it you not only have these wonderful recipes but you also have the time it takes to prep.”
