On Feb. 13, the Phinney Center will simulcast the 15th annual celebration of the founding of Beacon Hill Village in Boston, which inspired an “aging in place” movement, which now boasts more than 350 villages around the country, including the PNA Village.
The simulcast is from 1:30-4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, at the Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., in the Brick Building. Renowned surgeon and public health researcher Dr. Atul Gawande will be the guest speaker.
His conversation, entitled “Being Mortal’s Villages: The Value of Community and Choice as we Grow Older,” will be moderated by Robin Young, host of NPR’s Here & Now, and feature a discussion on aging, living life with purpose, and how we can transform the possibilities for the later chapters in everyone’s lives.
All are welcome to join the PNA Village for a viewing party and subsequent conversation facilitated by Cecile Andrews, author of Living Room Revolution: A Handbook for Conversation, Community, and the Common Good.
The Village Movement is a burgeoning, world-wide movement that champions an alternative approach for adults as they grow older. Villages are unique in that they are created by and for older adults, empowering their members to make wise, safe, and vibrant choices about how they wish to live.
