Disrupt AgingWe are all aging, every day.  The good news is the way we are aging is changing, mostly for the better.  Our ability to live longer, healthier, more productive lives is one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments.  But the bad news is we don’t see it that way.  Attitudes and stereotypes about aging haven’t changed.  And many ideas and solutions available to us as we age are out of date.  We need to change the conversation about age and aging in this country.  It’s time to Disrupt Aging.
