A Look Back at our Keynote Presentations

  • Kay Van Norman and dancer (horse)

    RUNNING WITH SCISSORS  |  Kay Van Norman

    We examined the hidden barriers to healthy aging and describes how to overcome “lifestyle inertia” and engage healthy lifestyles both personally and professionally. With Kay Van Norman's engaging keynote presentation, we explored what’s behind the common gap between intentions for aging well and the actions, and provides practical strategies to help individuals move into action.

  • Angela Lunde

    RE-IMAGINE DEMENTIA  |  Angela Lunde, M.A. 

    When we arrived, we all likely had specific keywords, stereotypes, or impressions that came to mind when we would think about dementia. In Angela Lunde's presentation, we learned to challenge the common stereotypes we held about dementia and left with a new and more truthful narrative to apply to our expectations, beliefs, language, and actions when it comes to aging and dementia.

  • David Iverson


    With a captivating keynote presentation, David Iverson challenged us to consider how can we build a society that bolsters both those who are aging and those who support them. Together we grappled with the facts that our country is growing older each year and the percentage of those living with degenerative diseases continues to increase at alarming rates. Despite the staggering percentages, we were reminded that there is power in numbers and we are all in this together.
