It’s time to tell a new story about aging!
We invite you to join the Reframing Aging Initiative for a series of six one-hour webinars to learn how to tell a new story – the whole story- of aging. This story explains that good ideas know no age limit, and that experience and wisdom can be tapped to benefit us all.
The Reframing Aging Initiative is a long-term social change endeavor designed to improve the public’s understanding of what aging means and the many ways that older people contribute to our society. This greater understanding will counter ageism and guide our nation’s approach to ensuring supportive policies and programs for us all as we move through the life course.
Led by the nation’s leading aging organizations, the Reframing Aging Initiative is powered by research. We need you to become involved! Come learn how this initiative is engaging leaders like you, sharing tested communication tools, and teaching us all how to tell a new story. For more information about the initiative, visit us at www.reframingaging.org.
Note: Because each webinar in this series does build on the previous one, we encourage you to attend every webinar. Following this series, interested people will have the opportunity to apply for additional in-depth training on the reframing aging communication strategy. More information on upcoming opportunities will be provided.
Please share with colleagues who would like to join!
Rush University designates this live activity for (6) Continuing Education credits.
Attendees must attend all sessions to receive full credit.
