Experts in psychology, longevity and geriatrics discussed Abundant Aging in the 21st Century at the 2017 Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging second annual Symposium Oct. 20 in Columbus.

About 170 people attended the event with keynote speaker Dr. Laura Carstensen, professor of psychology at Stanford University and the founding director of the Stanford Center on Longevity in Stanford, California. Panelists included Linda Mauger, Optimized Care Network; Jo Dee Davis, Healing Broken Circles; Rev. Mark W. Frey, United Church of Christ minister; Larke Recchie, CEO, Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging; Peter Van Runkle, executive director, Ohio Health Care Association; and Dr. Lauren Southerland, assistant professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

“When time is perceived as constrained, as it typically becomes as we grow older, people are motivated to focus on what is most important. They are more likely to invest in sure things, deepen existing relationships and savor life. Under these circumstances, people are less interested in banking information for a long and nebulous future and instead invest in pursuits that are emotionally meaningful.”

Dr. Laura Carstensen, Keynote Speaker
