Aging Mastery Program (AMP)

Testimonials from Past Participants

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) is a fun and engaging education and behavior change incentive program for aging well. Harvey Padek of Milwaukee AHEC is a certified instructor of AMP through the National Council on Aging (NCOA).

The AMP core curriculum covers 10 topics. The class experience is a mix of didactic and interactive learning with an emphasis on peer-to-peer interaction. When they graduate from AMP, participants have set goals for positive actions in many aspects of their lives such as exercise, nutrition, finances, advance care planning, community engagement, and healthy relationships. 

Results have been very encouraging and consistent since the classroom version of Aging Mastery launched in 2013. Results have shown that older adults in the program participants significantly increased their:

  • Social connectedness

  • Physical activity levels

  • Healthy eating habits

  • Use of advanced planning

  • Participation in evidence-based programs

  • Adoption of several other healthy behaviors
