9-8-2022 New Mexico 44th Annual Conference on Aging


I'm honored to have been selected to be one of the presenters for this years
Annual Conference on Aging (44) I hope next year this will again be a live event.
I'll eventually update this post with statistics as to the number of attendees.
This was a statewide event but you could only watch the presentations offered
id you signed up prior to the event or if you watched it at one of the designated
Viewing sites throughout the state. I did receive quite a few compliments during
the showing of the event and, was able, via chat, to answer questions asked.
https://nmaging.state.nm.us/news-events/conference-on-aging
Here's an additional link I just received - https://online.fliphtml5.com/cxugl/hrjl/
I just received the following from the NM Cabinet Secretary,

I read that Avast article with interest, having used the FitBit for some time, I never gave them any information, but I found it to be more hassle than it was worth.  But more so its total inaccurate in calculating my pulse whilst out walking/jogging.

As a side note you had a hidden link spammer join your topic, I found this very interesting (or words to that effect), but he didn't last very long before being culled.

I'm sure the accuracy will improve with time. About the spammer, I noticed that "Chreey" wasn't around for too long. :)
