Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP and the author of Disrupt Aging: A Bold New Path to Living Your Best Life at Every Age, discusses age-based stereotypes and discrimination faced daily in our society. Written with humour and inspiration, Jo Ann’s book creates a map for making the most of your golden years while focusing on three topics: Health, Wealth, and Self.
Her nationally bestselling book was released in 2016, with a goal to change the outdated conversation that revolves around the subject of aging. By shifting our attitudes, behaviours, and our culture, the world is calling out ageist attitudes that place limits on people around the world.
Covering her personal journey along with the experiences of others, Disrupt Aging highlights these individuals’ efforts to embrace new opportunities, encouraging society to adjust the way they look at getting older, all while providing hands-on advice. She touches on important issues facing folks age 50 and older, from caregiving to making age-friendly communities and finances.
A book for individuals with a mindset of celebrating the idea of discovery instead of decline, learn Jo Ann’s take on why Aging is such a beautiful thing.
Disrupt Aging: A Bold New Path to Living Your Best Life at Every Age can be purchased on Amazon or from other book providers.
