PED is a pro-active organization, which researches, develops, implements and promotes wellness programs and projects in collaboration with like-minded individuals, organizations, and businesses. We believe that physical activity, intellectual challenge, creativity, emotional fulfillment, and spiritual enrichment are the foundations of successful aging.
The Spokane area has recently received national acclaim as the 3rd Best City in which to retire; we have known this to be true for many years. PED has been a leading organization in the development of programs that encourage active, vibrant, healthy living; inspiring members of every generation within the community to stay engaged in life. We have a strong volunteer base of over 100 people of all ages that make the work we do possible. Our programs include those in exercise, education, health monitoring, volunteerism, and the literary and visual arts—all bridges to successful aging.
