This Week on The Health Hub…Beating Back the Cultural Bias of Ageism with Ashton Applewhite

Author and activist Ashton Applewhite is the author of “This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism”. In 2016, she joined PBS site Next Avenue’s annual list of 50 Influencers in Aging as their Influencer of the Year and Lifetime Arts recently awarded her their 2018 Game Changer Award. Ashton has been recognized by the New York Times, the New Yorker, National Public Radio, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism. She blogs at This Chair Rocks, has written for Harper’s, Playboy, and the New York Times, and is the voice of ‘Yo, Is This Ageist?’.  Ashton speaks widely, at venues that have ranged from universities and community centers to the TED mainstage and the United Nations. She is a leading spokesperson for a movement to mobilize against discrimination on the basis of age.
