Since its founding in the fall of 2003, the Office of Lifespan Studies (OLS)continues the evolution of it's mission. WE encourage contacts from older adults, retirees, and others including caregivers, and professionals from other organizations that serve these people, to find ways the OLS may be of service in improving the quality of life for all Grand Strand older adults, seniors, retirees and others and especially with programs for active lifestyles.
