Our GoldenCare members spoke, and we listened—thanks to those who responded to our survey about how we reimagine our annual GoldenCare health and wellness event in a pandemic-recovery world. While many of you were not yet ready to return to large indoor gatherings, you were interested in access to health and wellness information to keep you thriving.

As a result, our 2022 GoldenCare Health & Wellness Event was virtual, with content experts from across Valley Medical Center speaking to the topics you asked to know more about. The event began with a 30 min LIVE webinar with licensed mental health counselor Dani Dutro, discussing mental health and wellness in the retirement years.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Chateau at Valley Center
