25 Ochre Point Ave, Newport , RI 02840


Our youth-obsessed culture saturates us with messages of shame about growing older and the natural process of aging. Color the gray hair, hide those bald spots and wrinkles, and step aside for the younger generation. How do these ageist stereotypes divide and debase our society?

Join us in examining these societal views on aging with Dr. Anna Matos-Mournighan, deputy director of the Edward King House Senior Center in Newport and co-lead for Newport For All Ages. We’ll explore the research behind damaging ageist stereotypes and talk about the benefits of adopting more age-friendly attitudes with guidance from excerpts of the book This Chair Rocks by Ashton Applewhite.
