Aging is a major concern for many Americans. I’m excited to be a member of the NCCA’s board of directors to help raise awareness about the importance of shedding inhibitions and engaging in something new and creative in the latter part of life. I want to shift the paradigm that aging is a negative and uncertain process and instead educate younger generations that aging can be a very profound and inspiring time in one’s life.
