Changing the Narrative has developed an Age-Friendly Healthcare presentation to raise awareness about the negative impacts ageism has on our health, lifespan and the economy, as well as concrete actions that we can take—whether as consumers or providers—to make healthcare more age-friendly.
Our intent? To increase awareness about ageism among healthcare professionals and others who work with older adults, and activate consumers to advocate for ourselves and for system changes.
The goals of this interactive session are to:
- Increase understanding of ageism and its adverse effects on our health
- Motivate people to continue talking about the impacts ageism has on our health and what can be done about it
- Share methods for improving healthcare interactions
Post-session: Share what you’ve learned! Inspire your communities & networks to take actionable steps that will remove ageism from healthcare.
The session is free; but do REGISTER. You’ll receive Zoom log-in instructions 24 hours before the event.
