Changing Aging Tour: Life’s Most Dangerous Game

June 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Our culture tells us that aging will change us against our will, and for the worse. Dr. Bill Thomas, a graduate of Harvard Medical School and an international authority on geriatric medicine and eldercare, argues that this is false. Blending myth and science, live music and visuals, Dr. Thomas’ ChangingAging Tour is barnstorming the country in a rock and roll tour bus to bring communities a new understanding of aging. Drawing on ancient wisdom and scientific breakthroughs, the ChangingAging Tour challenges audience members to reject ageist stereotypes and embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward and possibility.

 

Dr. Thomas’ signature show, “Aging: Life’s Most Dangerous Game,” includes original music, storytelling, poetry and groundbreaking insights on aging and care, featuring musical guest Nate Silas Richardson. “Aging can be reimagined as a vivid and enlivening process that presents us with extraordinary risks, and rewards,” Dr. Thomas said. “So, how are we supposed to play this most dangerous of all games? What do winning and losing look like?”

 

Come early for vendor displays, light refreshments, and tours of the Sosin Center.
