Positive Aging Conference
The Positive Aging Consortium will host the first Positive Aging Conference on June 10, 2022 at the Miller Education Center at MTSU. The purpose of the conference is to bring together MTSU faculty, students, community providers, caregivers and older adults to drive a more-productive narrative about the benefits of an increase in the average lifespan.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Julie Sweetland with Frameworks Institute. Dr. Sweetland will discuss the Reframing Aging Initiative that includes, but also goes beyond, the choice of words we use to describe older adults—to frame how we think, talk about, and conduct research with older adults in ways that resonate with the public.
Other conference topics include exercise, nutrition, cognition, living environments, financial decision-making and scam prevention. Seating for this event is limited, so please check back regularly for updates and to register to attend.
