Let’s End Ageism: We’re All Aging with Ashton Applewhite and Judy Foreman
What’s a surefire way to make activism more effective? Make it intergenerational. What’s the biggest obstacle? An ageist culture that pits old against young and bombards us with messages that wrinkles are tragic and old people useless. Aging is not a problem to be “fixed” or a disease to be “cured”. It is a natural, powerful, lifelong process that unites us all, and a world that’s better to grow old in is better for everyone. Join Ashton Applewhite and Judy Foreman for a robust conversation about ageism - debunking myth after myth about late life and dismantling ageism in the process.
Ashton Applewhite is an internationally recognized expert on ageism and the author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism available at www.thischairrocks.com Judy Foreman is an award-winning medical journalist and author. Her latest book is Exercise is Medicine available at www.judyforeman.com
