Description

She Rocks!

Her story is still being written. Join us because we all have a story that should be heard!

On November 18, 2018, the Profiles of Positive Aging Image Awards honors and celebrates elders who continue to live their lives on purpose. The focus is not on chronology, rather on wisdom from life-long experiences shared with other generations.

Come and experience the living gallery and hear the myriad fascinating stories about our honorees, during the Profiles of Positive Aging Image Awards Gala on Nov 18th at the Atlanta History Center. Hear Grammy award winning Beverly "Guitar" Watkins play her soulful jazz, blues, and gospel ensemble during an interview of her amazing life's journey. Ms. Watkins has played with the greatest musicians of our time.

Event Purpose: Since 2012, LeadingAge Georgia members, the Georgia Institute on Aging, and collaborative partners like AARP Georgia have been forging this important movement to overcome ageism in our society. As Katie Sloan, the CEO of LeadingAge national, puts it--Ageism is one of the last socially acceptable "isms" in American society. However, we intend to break down this barrier.

About the Sponsors: Consumers can count on LeadingAge Georgia, the Georgia Institute on Aging, and the Center for Positive Aging as the trusted voice and source for senior living and care options. Proceeds from this gala support the Georgia Institute on Aging, which is the educational arm of LeadingAge Georgia. For more information go to: www.LeadingAgeGA.org.
