50 Over 50: Conversations on Aging Well

50 Over 50 Nov Event.jpeg

We all have something to learn and something to teach. And that doesn’t stop after the age of 50. In fact, as we age, our propensity to try new things, to embrace failure, and to evolve grows stronger. Just ask AARP Minnesota and Pollen’s cohort of 50 Over 50 honorees who are changing the conversation on aging, making an impact in their communities, and sharing their optimism for the future.

Join AARP Minnesota and Pollen on Tuesday, November 16 for our next 50 Over 50 virtual community event. Diana Pierce, a 2020 50 Over 50 Disruptor and the host of “What’s Next”, will sit down with fellow honorees Gail Chang Bohr, Hope Flanagan, Beth Parkhill, and Diego Vázquez Jr. to dispel the myth that there’s only one path for us once we reach a certain age.


Welcome & Performance 11:30 a.m.

Conversation 11:45 a.m.

Connections 1:00 p.m. (for honorees only)
