Age-Friendly Healthcare: What you can do!
February 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST
Do you know how ageism – prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination against people based on their age – can impact your health, and what it looks like in our healthcare systems?
Join us for a presentation and discussion about how ageism shows up in healthcare. We will share details about the impacts of ageism on your health, and how to become proactive advocates for better healthcare experiences.
We will discuss:
- How to recognize your own beliefs about age
- Why understanding ageism will help you become better advocates
- What to do when you feel ageism is affecting your health care experiences
You will leave this event with tools to effectively communicate your healthcare needs.
