Delegates from all over the world who attended the Aging and Society: Third Interdisciplinary Conference.
This year's conference features the special theme: Healthy Aging: Educating through Media. To explore and discuss this theme, The Aging Conference has partnered with Working Films to look at how different forms of media can be used to educate and talk about aging and society. As part of this discussion two documentaries from Working Films’s Series: Reel Aging will be featured. These selections are Prison Terminal directed by Edgar Barens and The Graying of Aids directed by Katja Heinemann and Naomi Schegloff. Additionally a panel discussion on the morning of the 9th will serve as a forum to examine how media is and can be used to educate about aging and health.
The Aging and Society: Third Interdisciplinary Conference featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
