This panel discussion will feature community leaders for a rich discussion on ‘Ageism’ -- the new “-ism”.
One of the critical issues facing seniors relates to age discrimination. This new ‘ism’ called ‘Ageism’ is an issue faced by both younger and older individuals. For older individuals, as members of a growing population of aging Canadians, both the individual and society can benefit when a positive approach to aging is adopted. Current research shows that in a society where the positive aspects of aging are promoted, improved aging health and an increase in life expectancy enables seniors to continue to be viewed as valuable, contributing societal members.
Join us as Stephen Mandel, Karen Vande Vyvere and Dr. Adrian Wagg come together to share their thoughts and personal experiences on the topic of Aging and Ageism: Upsides/Downsides”.
