The Aiming Higher After 50: What Comes Next? virtual conference was conceived from a perceived unmet need in the healthcare community: what happens when life changes course? How do we respond in ways that honor ourselves, our wisdom, and our families? This gathering was created to make space for these questions, and to give leaders in the field a place to share their research.
A chalkboard stood in the middle of New York City asking passersby to write down their biggest regrets. As the board filled up, we noticed that all of these responses had one alarming thing in common. Created and Directed by Jordan Zaslow
