The Vanderbilt Child and Family Center will host a Lunch and Learn on May 20 from noon to 1 p.m. in Light Hall, Room 437.

Kim Lippard, a registered nurse with Home Instead Senior Care, will speak about the “40-70 Rule: An Action Plan for Successful Aging.” The 40-70 rule encourages individuals to begin vital conversations with their aging loved ones when they reach the approximate ages 40 and 70, respectively. The 40-70 rule is designed to help families deal with sensitive topics related to end of life and come up with a plan that takes the guesswork out of aging.
