The 2016 CONA Conversation Hour: Faster, Higher, Farther...Older: The Masters Sports Movement

With the Summer Olympics underway during convention, join CONA for a conversation with award-winning photographer, Rob Jerome, who for over a decade has been photographing older athletes performing at exceptional levels in various sports. Jerome will share some of his photographs of international "Masters Athletics" competitions, talk about organized sports available to older adults around the world and share his observations on the older athletes he's met. Conversation to follow will touch on the importance of sports for older adults beyond the obvious physical benefits. The 2016 CONA Award for the Advancement of Psychology and Aging will be presented at the outset of the conversation hour.
