Opening Plenary Session: Thursday, Feburary 23, 6:30 p.m.
This symposium focuses on the theme of re-engaging aging within the priorities of institutions of higher education, from the general education and life skills education of community college and undergraduate programs to the masters, doctoral, and post-doctoral level training provided in research universities. Symposium contributors, each representing a particular constituency and a unique vantage point derived from personal experience, will review the challenges and opportunities for strengthening gerontology and geriatrics within higher education.

"Age of Champions"
Film Screening: February 24, 10 a.m.
Join Producer Ali Sargent for a screening of the new documentary "Age of Champions," an inspiring story of a group of athletes a 100-year-old tennis champion, a 86-year-old pole vaulter, a pair of swimming brothers, and a team of basketball grandmothers all chasing gold at the National Senior Games. The film captures the triumphant spirit of these seniors who tackle old age with grace, humor, and optimism. Win or lose, they are living proof that it's never too late to become a champion.
