Ageism permeates the fabric of our society, inhibiting optimal aging and quality of life for America’s elders. It is a gross misunderstanding and misrepresentation of older adults, portraying them as social liabilities instead of a cohort with valuable knowledge, ideas and wisdom, which can strengthen our communities. Without a significant change in value constructs held by the public, media and policy makers, older Americans’ lives will continue to be seriously constrained by myth and negative stories. This program will explore the possibilities of reframing aging to be perceived as a destination, and transforming current perceptions.
