CARL HELVIE TO SIGN COPIES OF HIS BOOK ON "HEALTHY HOLISTIC AGING" TODAY

Carl O. Helvie, Old Dominion University professor emeritus of nursing, will sign copies of his new book, "Healthy Holistic Aging: A Blueprint for Success," Thursday, March 22. He will appear from noon to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30-2 p.m. in the atrium of the College of Health Sciences Building.

A recognized health practitioner and nursing educator, Helvie began teaching at Old Dominion in 1972. His interests include public health, prevention, holism and alternative health.

His latest work, published by Syren Book Co., focuses on how our decisions, thoughts and actions influence the aging process. Helvie, 74, is among the 11 percent of the population age 65 and over who take no prescribed medications - thus, avoiding the associated costs and inconveniences - and who are also reportedly more physically active than others in their age group.

In the book, he shares his secrets for successful aging that he has used in his own life and with thousands of clients during his 55-year career in nursing.
