Nationally Recognized Author, Ageism Expert To Speak At 2017 Embrace Aging Forum

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

With more than 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day in the United States, the demographic landscape is changing. That is why Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C. is holding the Embrace Aging forum: an all-day event for individuals, families, caregivers and leading service providers.

The forum will be held on Thursday, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Embassy Suites at Hamilton Place, 2321 Lifestyle Way, Chattanooga, Tn. 37421.

Ashton Applewhite, Next Avenue's 2016 Aging Influencer of the Year, will kick off the forum as the keynote speaker. Ms. Applewhite is the author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism and received a standing ovation on the TED mainstage for her talk on ageism.

The forum is sold out, but community members interested in attending can be added to the event waitlist by visiting www.embraceagingforum.com.

The Embrace Aging forum aims to provide community members with resources to develop a plan for assets, benefits and health care early on in order to prevent future problems. Attendees will have the opportunity to share, network and learn about important topics in aging, such as benefits planning, health and wellness, estate and financial planning, and elder abuse.
