Posted on February 24, 2019

Live Webinar: Tuesday, April 23rd, from 1pm – 2pm EST

Hear from award-winning author and activist, Ashton Applewhite! Ageism—stereotyping and prejudice on the basis of age—is stoked by social and economic forces and harms us both individually and collectively.  This fear harms us both individually and collectively. Age discrimination is also a global human rights and social justice issue. This webinar will outline how ageism is harmful in all aspects of life and how to combat it to improve health and well-being at all life stages.

Participants will walk away understanding the  harmful impact of ageism and have a strategy for combatting it to ensure that everyone can age with dignity and respect.
