Allina Health in the News

What is the key to a long life?

[WCCO-TV News, September 16, 2021] It’s something that used to be rare, but it’s becoming much more common. More people are living to 100, especially in the U.S.

Dr. Kathleen Woo-Rippe heads up the geriatrics population program for Allina. Woo-Rippe says there are a few reasons people are living longer.

“When I see the people who are over 100, they all have something in common, and that is they’re pretty feisty,” Woo-Rippe said. “Number one is their attitude, they enjoy life."

She says another huge reason is physical activity.
