As part of the third annual Age-Friendly Ecosystem Summit, the George Washington University's Center for Aging, Health and Humanities presents it's first of four themed installments, Ageism.

Overview

Internalized negative beliefs about aging and external forms of discrimination based on age are both prevalent issues that can decrease a person’s lifespan and impact quality of life. Age-friendly communities must address negative beliefs about aging and ageist elements in the environment to ensure that individuals of all ages are able to pursue goals important to them. Participants will learn how to recognize implicit ageist bias, ageism, and their impact on life span and quality of life.

About The Summit

The George Washington University's Center for Aging, Health and Humanities is hosting the third annual Age-Friendly Ecosystem Summit virtually this fall. This free, regional, collaborative event will be held in partnership with Age-Friendly Alexandria, Arlington, DC, Howard County, Hyattsville, Montgomery County, and the Georgetown University Aging & Health Program.

This year we will be hosting four two-hour blocks over four days. Taking place September 26 through October 4, the events will be grouped by four themes that cross-cut age-friendly initiatives: ageism, inclusivity, communications, and creativity. Please make plans to join us for any or all sessions, as your schedule allows.
