swt-bill-reimagineAre you ready to rethink aging?  Join AARP Louisiana and The United Way of Southeast Louisiana at Dr. Bill Thomas’ Second Wind Tour May 20th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre.

Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the most innovative and creative thinkers working in medicine today, is bringing a radical new approach to growth and aging through a national “non-fiction” theatrical tour produced in partnership with AARP’s Life Reimagined, Capital Impact Partners, Merrill Lynch and more than three dozen sponsor organizations.

Inspired by Thomas’ new book examining the baby boom generation’s reluctant generational second coming of age –“Second Wind: Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper and More Connected Life”—the tour will bring a unique “non-fiction” theater experience blending the spoken word, innovative set design, film, and music.

Audiences will be taken on a holistic exploration that draws on a deep well of evidence-based approaches to growth, change, aging, health and wellness.  The goal of the tour is to start a new conversation that reframes “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development – a time for challenging attitudes toward aging.

We will have time for reflection and discussion with area leaders in the aging network.  We hope you will mark your calendar for this extraordinary event!
