Attendees of an AARP Connecticut, Borrow My Glasses and Quinnipiac University Revolutionize Aging: A Masters Level Discussion on Disrupt Aging event at the University’s North Haven campus on Tuesday, Sept. 27, went on a "revolutionary journey" without having to leave their seat. The free forum – featuring internationally acclaimed longevity expert Dr. Bill Thomas as keynote speaker – introduced the more than 150 industry professionals and students to new and innovative methods of thinking about aging in today’s society.
The engaging and interactive forum was one step in a continuing evolution to raise awareness of the need for more conversation and understanding about the nature of aging today, as well as resources and study dedicated to learning about adulthood and elderhood.
In addition to being the keynote speaker, Dr. Thomas moderated several panel discussions with a diverse list of Connecticut-based experts from the aging and caregiving field, including Donna Fedus, gerontologist and founder of the Borrow My Glasses organization that provides a look at aging and caregiving from a new perspective, and Professor Catherine Richards Solomon, Quinnipiac professor of sociology and department chairperson.
