Aiming Higher After 50

Discover your future – Health, Money, Housing, & Joy
October 18 – 20, 2016
Stanford University

Research Professor Laura Carstenson, founder of Stanford Center on Longevity, and other experts show that people with a strong sense of purpose tend to live healthier, longer, happier lives and continue to engage in meaningful ways with their community and the world.

Aiming Higher After 50 is a 3-day conference designed for the 50+ age range. We will explore ways to live a more healthy and meaningful life well past retirement age, and to overcome the barriers that may be standing in our way.

The workshop presenters are Stanford staff and faculty, alumni and community, all chosen for their national prominence in healthy aging. The content is based on sound pedagogical work grounded in health promotion and behavior change, and is designed to help participants challenge the myths about aging and explore a healthy and meaningful physical, social, cognitive, and spiritual second half of their lives.
