U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Yuyi Jiang, 86th Dental Squadron dental assistant technician, laughs during a photo shoot on Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Sept. 13, 2017. Being a dental assistant has helped further Jiang’s understanding of healthy aging by emphasizing the importance of oral hygiene. “I think healthy aging is where you do the best you can for yourself — physically, mentally, and emotionally. Eating nutritious foods and exercising help our bodies function properly, therefore, aging healthily. It’s very important that we think and learn about healthy aging, because like Albert Einstein once said, the moment we stop learning, is the moment we start dying.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Savannah L.
