Gero-Punk Project Featured in Changing Aging

Dr. Jennifer Sasser's Gero-Punk Project was featured on, a blog from Dr. Bill Thomas. Dr. Thomas, international expert on elderhood and geriatric medicine, is founder of the Eden Alternative and Green House Project.

He writes:

I am beginning to see that elderhood needs and is very likely to benefit from a bolus of transgression, of searching, probing, of not knowing. I'm pretty sure that Jenny Sasser (the original geropunk) would also agree with me that the cultivation of a searching but confident unknowingness should be injected into the lives of adults as well.

Adults need to learn how to live as if elderhood matters.
