Turning Aging2.0 into a reality has required tremendous support from a variety of people who’ve both shared our vision and got their hands dirty (sometimes literally) to build the beginning of a unique global community. We’re deeply indebted in particular to the advice and help from Emily Lutzker, Mary Cummins, Liz Emery, Wen Dombrowski, Nina Dunn, Paul Nikolaidis and Eve Bayer.
We’re now in the process of establishing a global set of Chapters who will take the message of innovation for older adults around the world – stay tuned for updates on that exciting expansion of the Aging2.0 team in the coming weeks.
