Janine Vanderburg, Director and Chief Catalyst at Changing the Narrative will share more about the communications and awareness campaign to increase the understanding of ageism and change how people think, talk and act about aging and ageism. Ending ageism is important. People across the United States and the world are living longer and healthier lives. Yet national research conducted by FrameWorks Institute over the last three years shows that aging is misunderstood in America, and ageist and negative stereotypes about older people abound.
