Jennifer Sasser Speaks at Aging Workshop

Jennifer Sasser, human sciences chair, spoke about aging with grace at a workshop presented by the American Association of Retired Persons on October 25 in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

The event, When I get Old: Decline, Loss, Grace and Transformation, combined storytelling and discussion among attendees asking, What does old age hold for us or our aging loved ones? Loss? decline? Or grace and transformation?

The event was part of an AARP workshop series, From Surviving to Thriving: Navigating Aging and Family Caregiving, in which local experts provide information and tools to help individuals and their loved ones navigate the aging and caregiving journey and remain independent as long as possible.
