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 Yet much of society is still stuck in outdated stereotypes and misperceptions about what it means to grow older.
Jo Ann Jenkins, Chief Executive Officer of AARP and author of Disrupt Aging, believes we need to challenge these outdated beliefs and spark new solutions so more people can choose how they want to live and age. She will discuss how we can disrupt aging to create a bold new path to living our best life at every age. Focusing on three core areas—health, wealth, and self—Ms. Jenkins shows us how to embrace opportunities so aging can be something to look forward to—not something to fear. Contrary to what the ads on TV and in magazines tell us—that “50 is the new 30!” or “60 is the new 40!”— Ms. Jenkins says 50 is 50 and she, for one, likes the look of it.
