"DiGiovanna Web Site Addresses Aging Process"

SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Augustine DiGiovanna, professor of biology in the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology at Salisbury State University, recently addressed the Institute for Retired Persons at SSU. His presentation, "Old Skin and Old Muscles: What Happened and Why," explained the underlying process in aging of the skin and muscles and addressed frequently asked questions regarding aging.

In response to the interest from the audience DiGiovanna has created a Web page (http://henson1.salisbury.edu/~agdigiov/Topics/skn_mscl.htm) to address some of the following questions about aging including: Why does skin wrinkle?, What are age spots?, Why do bruise marks occur more easily?, What does sunlight do to the skin?, Why do muscles get weaker and slower?, Why are complicated motions and new activities more difficult to learn? and Why does fatigue develop quickly?
