ENGAGING AGING — PRACTICES TO ENHANCE YOUR JOURNEY

There are more of us entering our 50s and 60s – the second half of our lives – in the 21st century than ever before. Few in the American culture honor elders the way other world cultures do, which could make it difficult to prepare for our journey of aging.

This symposium proposes a new standard for those who fear that the second half of life offers only decline, disease, despair and eventually death. It is an opportunity to reframe aging and learn vital practices to start this journey.

Friday, October 25, 2013
University of Dayton River Campus
1700 S. Patterson Blvd. (map)

General admission and lunch: $35.00
Register early. Symposium is limited to 350 participants.

About the Chapman Senior Symposium

In 1997, the University of Dayton received an endowment gift from The Retirement Research Foundation in Chicago, the nation’s largest private foundation solely devoted to aging and retirement issues. The endowment was made in the name of Duane W. Chapman, parent and grandparent of UD alumni.

The University established the Duane W. Chapman Senior Symposium, following the endowment’s directives that biennial symposiums focus on trends and research in gerontology and social issues featuring nationally known experts. We are grateful to the Chapman family and The Retirement Research Foundation for choosing the University of Dayton for this endowment.
