How do we stigmatize being old personally, structurally, and institutionally? Tracey Gendron, Ph.D., author of Ageism Unmasked, will show how ageism is prejudice towards both younger and older people. Through her work, Gendron has inspired people of all ages to embrace aging as our universal and lifelong process of developing over time — biologically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. In this session, she will provide the tools needed to anticipate and experience elderhood as a time of renewed meaning and purpose, empowering each of us to create our own definition of successful aging.
