Aging Isn’t What It Used to Be! (IN PERSON)

This session will discuss modern aspects of aging which are no longer simply age dependent. Modern “old age” is more dependent on abilities and interests than chronology. Today’s seniors are more physically and mentally active and several are engaged in continuous learning and teaching. Indeed, many are learning just as much from their grandchildren as their grandchildren are learning from them which has made society better for everyone. In keeping with this theme and realization, this will be an interactive session producing exchanges of ideas and varied ways of addressing today’s issues. Thus, enabling us all to learn from each other.
