This year our PACE studies will be seen through the focus lens of WELLNESS.  This will include defining what wellness means to us. Does it mean the same thing to people in other countries?

What do mental health and physical health have to do with wellness? 
Does it really matter what food we eat? 
How do we take care of our teeth and our eyes?
Who helps us stay well?

A special focus will be WATER.  Why is water important to our health?  We will compare our access to clean water with others around the world.
