1. The Wisdom of Age with Jeff Rubin, Speaker, Author and Positive Aging Advocate Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP 1:01:45

We tend to marginalize and disregard older adults, thinking they no longer can contribute to our lives or society in any purposeful or meaningful way, especially those older adults who no longer participate in the workforce as we know it. But in doing so, we are ignoring the valuable resource, legacies, stories, the witness to history that can only be captured through the personal experiences by those who lived them.
Jeff Rubin has set out to capture those experiences, stories, and words of wisdom. In doing so, he’s undertaken the important work of bridging the generation gap, finding out that at both the younger and upper range of the age spectrums, there is a clarity and wisdom to be shared and appreciated. His innovative approach to developing intergenerational wisdom circles could go a long way in creating an understanding of the value our older adults bring to our families and to our community at large. A lifelong advocate, Jeff brings his own wisdom to the conversation.
