Past and Future Reflections on Aging Well
Robyn Golden, ACSW, LCSW, MA, director of older adult programs at Rush University Medical Center
Aging Well welcomes back Robyn Golden, who served on the planning committee for our first conference in 1999, and co-chaired the conference in 2000. Drawing on her 25-year career of fostering innovation in aging services, Ms. Golden will describe the transition from a top-down model of aging services delivery to one that meets the social, medical and basic needs of older adults as they perceive them. Ms. Golden is Director of Health and Aging at Rush University Medical Center, and is a past chair of the American Society on Aging.

Age of Champions is the award-winning documentary following five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll see a 100 year-old tennis champion, 86 year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they discover the power of the human spirit and triumph over the limitations of age. After the film, there will be panel discussion from senior community members who remain physically active and even participated in National Senior Olympics. Age of Champions was produced by the Documentary Foundation,a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Northern California.
