Ageism & Aging: Upsides/Downsides

March 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join Age Friendly Edmonton for a panel featuring community leaders for a rich discussion on ‘ageism’. Ageism is prejudice or discrimination against people based on their age. It typically applies to people who are older but can also affect young people. Current research shows that in a society where the positive aspects of aging are promoted, improved aging health and an increase in life expectancy enables seniors to continue to be viewed as valuable, contributing members. We will be featuring a panel of community leaders moderated by former city councillor Michael Phair. The panelist include, Dr. Sherry Dahlke a professor of nursing at the University of Alberta, Cheryle Chagnon-Greyeyes a storyteller from the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation and Eric Carrillo a community activist and publisher.
