Thinking Differently About Aging

Our inaugural webinar premiered Wednesday, June 9.  Click below to view.

This webinar was the first in a series of conversations designed to spark interest in thinking differently about aging. Our inaugural program featured four thought-provoking leaders, each with a unique perspective on aging.

The program was facilitated by award-winning journalist Deborah Becker, a reporter and host on WBUR, Boston’s NPR affiliate.

In addition, our experts considered how “age friendly” environments make a positive difference across the lifespan, the ways in which lifelong learning contributes to improved cognitive health, the factors including research and technological innovations that promote long-term wellness, and the importance of fostering an open and curious mind.
