Resources that fuel passion and projects

Updated: Apr 14, 2020



I spend time every day keeping up with the latest news and developments in the field of aging. The amount of online material available is massive. What I look for however, is information that further educates me.


I have two general resource categories: 1) ageism and 2) the new old age. Articles on ageism fuel my passion and projects to change how people feel about aging. These articles demonstrate the many forms of ageism, including age labeling, generational gaps, and most current nemesis, COVID-19.


The new old age is a popular term to describe today’s adults beyond 50. We-yes, I’m including myself here-view old as someone older than ourselves and participate in life differently-and often more- than our parents and grandparents did in their life after 50. Articles here show where we are aging in U.S.-and the impact on community, prove that age is just a number when it comes to lifting weights, share what relationships look like beyond 50-the same as any other age, demonstrate the power of blue zones-fight off the spread of COVID-19, prove that happiness beyond 50 is attainable, and announce that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
