Abramson in Newsday: Seniors Benefit from Creative Activities and Community Bonding

When older adults participate in creative activities, including music, the visual arts, or community theater they tend to have better physical and mental health, fewer doctor visits, and less need for medication, says Tobi Abramson, director of NYIT Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics, in Newsday (subscription required). Abramson says groups like Senior Pops contribute to seniors' well-being and quality of life. "It's about the music that brings them together, but it's the community that keeps them there."
