Aging with Gusto
October 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$89
How we think about aging has an impact on quality of life, health and even longevity. Biases, misconceptions and stereotypes about older adults often operate below conscious awareness. But whether we are aware of our prejudices or not, they hurt us all.
Professionals who work with older adults and their families have a significant impact on people’s views about aging. Have you
deeply examined your own views?
This Aging with Gusto CEU workshop offered by the Vital Aging Network is designed for social workers, health professionals,
housing staff and others. More about Aging with Gusto.
