Digital Education Programming Presented by the
Center for Health & Wellbeing & Growing Bolder

As COVID-19 continues to change nearly every aspect of our daily lives, what will our futures look like? Will it impact how we age and the opportunities we’d long planned to embrace and explore? 

In this month’s Growing Bolder Presents, Growing Bolder Founder and CEO Marc Middleton, one of the nation’s leading thought leaders on the changing face of aging, will explore the road ahead with Colin Milner, CEO of the International Council on Active Aging. 

The COVID-19 crisis has shined a spotlight on a lot of things that work and don’t work in our current society. How will we adapt and better prepare for a life with this or future pandemics? 

ICAA recently brought together 154 providers of housing and services for older adults to create strategies to support the senior living industry in the wake of the pandemic. Milner, the founder of the active-aging industry in North America, will share what this Senior Living Task Force discovered and share some tips for navigating the years ahead, particularly when it comes to your current or future living arrangements. This program is presented by Colin Milner and Marc Middleton and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with Growing Bolder.
