AARP Minnesota and Pollen invite you to meet the 2019 50 Over 50 honorees — 50 Minnesota leaders over 50 who are writing their own rules about aging. These incredible individuals are making an impact in many ways—driving the engines of opportunity in the business world, creating art and helping others do the same, affecting change in their communities, and finding new ways to upend the status quo. Whether they hail from Edina or Elk Lake, Bemidji or Bloomington, Nevis or North Minneapolis, they're leaders in their work, and fighters against the tired stereotypes around aging. For the fourth consecutive year, we are proud to honor these leaders and recognize their significant contributions and achievements in their communities.

On Saturday, May 19, the Minnesota House and Senate passed legislation strengthening protections for older and vulnerable adults in long-term care residential facilities. Currently the only state to not license assisted living facilities, Minnesota's Department of Health receives approximately 400 cases of abuse and neglect every week. The bill passed earlier this week (HF90/SF8) seeks to address this critical problem.
