Getboomersfit Never leave the playgroundWe had the pleasure to meet Stephen Jepson  (77 years old ) and saw his presentation at a conference about functioning aging in Orlando.  His motto is “Never leave the Playground”. Learning new skills, using hands and feet promotes cognition and brain function. It also enriches our lives and gives us an idea of how much more we can achieve if we try.

Check out the interview with Stephen from a while back
