The Second Annual National Positive Aging Conference will be held Nov. 12, 2008, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and will focus on “Achieving Purpose, Meaning and Vitality in the Second Half of Life.”

The conference, co-sponsored by AARP, will be broadcast online in order to promote community conversations at affiliated sites across the country. Participants will be encouraged to respond to speaker remarks and discuss strategies to promote positive aging in their respective communities. Organizations are welcome to host an online site broadcast to engage their community in this discussion.

The 2nd Annual Positive Aging conference will feature Richard Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute?; Richard Leider, author of Something to Live For and founder of The Purpose Project; Harry R. Moody, Director of Academic Affairs for AARP; and Dan Buettner, explorer, educator, and author of The Blue Zone: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who Live the Longest.
