50 Is the New 50

Monday, March 21 | 4:30–5:10 PM

Sponsored by AARP

CEU Credits: 1

The way people are aging is changing dramatically. Yet much of society is still stuck in outdated stereotypes and misperceptions about what it means to grow older. Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP, and guest editor of the recent Generations issue on self-empowered aging, believes we need to disrupt aging by challenging these outdated beliefs and sparking new solutions so more people can choose how they want to live and age. In this session, she will discuss how we can disrupt aging to help people create a bold new path to living their best life at every age. 

Presenter: Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO, AARP.
