LIFE at UCF: Dispelling Stereotypes of Aging


For 25 years, the Learning Institute for Elders (LIFE) has presented a weekly speaker series at the University of Central Florida. With every weekly presentation, LIFE dispels the stereotype of aging being a time of loss and loneliness. After launching with 50 members, the group has swelled to more than 650 members, with a lengthy waiting list.

Growing Bolder was invited to help celebrate LIFE’s 25 years of inspiration and we discovered a jam-packed room filled with people dedicated to lifelong learning.

Learn more about the social movement under way and hear from one of the movement’s leaders, Dr. Roger Landry, the author of “Live Long, Die Short” and a Growing Bolder contributor.
