Know someone in their 70s, 80s, or 90s who remains mentally sharp, whose cognitive ability hasn't diminished with age? Scientists have given these individuals a name- SuperAgers. The National Institute on Drug Abuse calls the misuse of prescription drugs by older citizens an "emerging epidemic". Wise Trek is Shelby Farms Park's program for those aged 50+ to get them active out on the trail.
