Volunteering Was My Personal Fountain of Youth (New York Times)

The New York Times quoted Paul Irving of the USC Leonard Davis School on the health benefits for older adults who volunteer. “The health benefits for older volunteers are mind-blowing,” he said. When older folks go in for physicals, he said, “in addition to taking blood and doing all the other things that the doctor does when he or she pushes and prods and pokes, the doctor should say to you, ‘So tell me about your volunteering.’”
