Aging Reimagined: A Multidisciplinary Symposium at Wake Forest University
March 17 - 18, 2016

The symposium will take place on the Wake Forest campus March 17-18, 2016 and will bring faculty, staff, students, and members of the Winston-Salem community together to discuss the topic of aging from many perspectives. Leading scholars, artists, medical professionals and researchers whose work focuses on this vital, intersectional topic will be here to share their insight on four key ideas that inform how we age, and how we think and feel about aging: Mobility, Mind (including memory), Mortality, and Meaning
