Advocacy Leadership for Positive Aging
October 24, 2018
12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
Janet M Hively, PhD
Cofounder of VAN
Focused on education and advocacy for positive aging
Jan Hively, PhD, a cofounder of VAN, delivered a very informative and engaging presentation regarding the progress of the positive aging movement. With a forecasted doubling of the state’s older adult population due to longevity and the “tsunami” of Boomers, this topic could not be more important or relevant.
Advancements in medical procedures and technology that reduce disabilities and expand access and mobility can add 20 years to the healthy, active middle of life rather than to the end of life, providing so many opportunities to age well.
Here are Jan's PowerPoint slides from her presentation.
