Ageism is pervasive in our society. And consciously or subconsciously, we all perpetuate ageist tropes. Why are these negative messages still acceptable? Unlike other forms of discrimination, we subtly accept ageism with little comment or concern. What’s more, ageism is the only form of prejudice we will all experience, if we live long enough. I’ll explore the the impact of ageism on health, on culture, and on on our values—as well as how to spot it and how to counter it.
