I believe in Magic

March 9, 2018 in Aging2.0

The MAGIC acronym is one coined by Dr. Bill Thomas and his team of supporters and collaborators who are part of a one-year pilot project with the University of Southern Indiana (USI) in Evansville. They will be pioneering a new (and very old) way of living.

Bill’s MAGIC acronym stands for: Multi-Ability, multiGenerational, Inclusive Community.

Dr. Bill Thomas is an author, entrepreneur, musician, teacher, farmer and physician whose wide-ranging work explores the terrain of human aging. His synthesis of imagination and action led the Wall Street Journal to highlight Dr. Thomas as one of the nation’s “top 10 innovators” changing the future of retirement in America and US News and World Report to name him as one of “America’s best leaders.”

This post is indeed a TEASER AD.

We cannot give you any details yet but they are all connected to moving the needle forward related to Aging in Rural Communities.  STAY TUNED.

 

 

What is Aging 2.0?

January 1, 2018 in Aging2.0

Founded in 2012, Aging2.0’s main mission is to bring together innovators in aging, senior care, and the longevity space to create a better world for older adults through innovation and technology. Aging2.0 is run by a small, dedicated, mission-driven team out of San Francisco, California.

It is focused on changing the conversation from 1.0 (focused on local, clinical, siloed approaches) to 2.0 (collaborative, lifestyle oriented, opportunity driven).
