All ages welcome! Hope to see you there!
Our culture tells us that aging will change us against our will, and for the worse. Internationally acclaimed longevity expert Dr. Bill Thomas argues that this is false. Blending myth and science, Dr. Bill Thomas is a modern day American Chautauqua barnstorming the country in a rock n’ roll tour bus to bring communities a new and highly disruptive understanding of aging. Drawing on ancient wisdom and scientific breakthroughs, the Dr. Bill Thomas challenges audience members to reject ageist stereotypes and embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward and possibility.
“Aging can be reimagined as a vivid and enlivening process that presents us with extraordinary risks, and rewards,” Dr. Thomas says. “So, how are we supposed to play this most dangerous of all games? What do winning and losing look like?”
Dr. Bill Thomas is an author, entrepreneur, musician, teacher, farmer and physician whose wide-ranging work explores the terrain of human aging. Best known for his health care system innovations, he is the founder of the global non-profit, “The Eden Alternative”, which works to improve the care provided to older people. He is the creator of “The Green House” which Provider Magazine has called the “pinnacle of culture change.” Dr. Thomas also developed the Senior ER model of care and is now working to transform the acute care services provided to elders.
