Health and Wellness Throughout the Lifespan

Every stage of life has its requirements for staying healthy. Young developmental psychologists investigate the psychological effects of stress and aging and health and wellness strategies that may improve one's quality of life. Groups research lifespan stages and produce a brochure for a Health and Wellness Throughout the Lifespan project about their assigned stage.
