Greatest Generation – April 13th

picThe Greatest Generation of Temple Judea of Manhasset is

     proud to welcome

 Prof. Michael D’Innocenzo

Sunday, April 13, 2014, 2-4 p.m.

  There is no doubt that we are in the midst of an Age Wave

 Why do more people over 65 see a bigger generation gap now than was felt during the radical 1960s? 

 Will there ever be an AAYP (American Association of Young People) to compete with the AARP?

 For Millennials (18-29 year olds): Is there more gender equality?  Is Facebook making people lonely?  Is college the new “Bubble”?  Is study abroad not a luxury, but a necessity?

 For Elders (Greatest Generation):  is 80 the new 50?  More older women with younger men?

 The “oldest old”, people over 100, are now the fastest growing segment of the US population.  What are the challenges of housing, health, family ties, dying (Bill Moyers documentary: “On Our Own Terms”)?

 New Studies:  from Harvard:  Aging Well:  Surprising Guideposts to a Happier Life and “Younger Next Year” The Longevity Project:  How to Keep Going and Going.

 Prof. D”Innocenzo has taught history at Hofstra University for 52 years.  He was recognized for his academic work when the American Historical Association awarded him the Eugene Asher Distinguished Teaching Award for his outstanding teaching of history at colleges and universities.
