Call In: Mental Fitness Fridays - Ending Ageism

10:30 AM – 11:00 AM

Description

Join us and focus on mindfulness every month. This month’s topic is Ending Ageism with Nancy Fingerhood.

We will discuss:

  • Why telling a new story about aging and ageism is so important, especially now. The benefits to all of us as we age for having positive views of aging.
  • How words and phrases that we may commonly use (e.g., "having a senior moment") can have negative consequences that we don't intend because they reinforce ageist attitudes and prejudicial stereotypes about older people.
  • Participants will leave with some concrete tips and tactics for addressing ageism as you encounter it, creating a better world for all of us.

Nancy Fingerhood is a Community Outreach Coordinator with Changing the Narrative in Colorado (CTN), a partnership of NextFifty Initiative and Rose Community Foundation to change the way people in our state think, talk and act about aging and ageism.
