The Path of Purposeful Aging
In your quiet moments, have you ever wondered about your purpose, your reason for being? If that question seems too weighty or “out there,” how about your reason for getting up in the morning? That’s pretty straightforward. Your answer to that question is your purpose. Purpose is fundamental. It is universal. Indeed, it’s the key to health, healing, happiness and longevity.


The DMCC Health and Wellness Premiere Speaker Series will welcome guest speaker Dr. Richard Leider on April 6, 2021 at 3pm, for a remote program in which he will provide participants with clear evidence, insight and practical tools for purposeful aging.


Richard Leider is an internationally bestselling author, coach, and keynote speaker who has pioneered the way we answer the question of purpose. Widely viewed as a pioneer of the global purpose movement, his work is featured regularly in many media sources including PBS public television and NPR public radio. His PBS Special – The Power of Purpose – was viewed by millions of people across the U.S. He has taken his purpose message to all 50 states, Canada, and on four continents.

COVID Vaccine Access
DMCC encourages all eligible adults to get vaccinated against COVID-19 whenever they qualify. Access to vaccination clinics and events can be challenging for many, because of transportation, ability to use the internet to make the reservation, or a number of other reasons. If you need extra help accessing the vaccine, please give us a call at (858) 792-7565 and DMCC staff and volunteers will be happy to assist with finding solutions. If you are a senior and your kids or grandkids are helping you and finding the process challenging, we invite them to call us, too.
