My 50 Aging Influencers 2018

ageing in place

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”
— Anonymous

At the end of each year I like to share with my network 50 Influencers in the field of AGING you may have never heard of. It’s a reminder of all the talented, creative, and dedicated people working to make the experience of aging more rewarding for all of us. I’m painfully aware of the many who don’t get listed and I hope you will contact me and let me know about your contribution to the field.

Here are the first 25, there is no order of importance or ranking, just a shout out to give thanks for the work you do and the people you influence (like me).

What you do matters…
