As part of our year-long celebration of the Boca Grande Health Clinic’s 75th anniversary, the Clinic is pleased to launch a short series of web videos that capture some of the “secrets” to having a long, productive life – told by some of the Island’s elders.
In the second episode of the series, we hear from Edith (Edie) Gardner. At 97 years young, Edie’s busy days keep her engaged and in constant motion.

Watch Edie’s secrets to longevity, Episode 2.
