In September, we will raise awareness about healthy aging, recovery from substance use, food security and childhood obesity. Every September, people living with sickle cell disease, their caregivers, advocates, healthcare providers and others come together to raise awareness about the disease and to dispel the myths and stigmas that surround it. Aging in a healthy way includes being well balanced from a psychological, social and physical point of view, and includes taking active measures to ensure it. Explore the links to learn how to support a healthy lifestyle for you, your family and your community.

September is the perfect time to celebrate Healthy Aging Month, as it's the time when many people think about starting new tasks after summer. Educational and fund-raising events are often held at this time to create a domino effect of positivity and empowerment not only for those living with health problems, but also for their loved ones. Based on the urge to “go back to school” ingrained in everyone since childhood, the activities of the month of remembrance are designed to encourage people to rejuvenate themselves and to adopt positive measures that may affect areas of physical, social, financial and mental well-being.
