Members only


We cannot watch television, read the newspaper, or log onto our favorite social media sites without encountering messages about age, aging, and older people. Our society cannot afford longevity. Aging is an inevitable process of loss and decline. We must avoid the external signs of aging at all costs. What is fact and what is fiction?
Elizabeth Bergman, Associate Professor and Chair of the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute, will explore several common myths about age, aging, and older people, as well as the impacts of our collective and individual beliefs about aging.
