Age BIG focuses on grassroots initiatives, often surrounding recreation, connection or aging in place. These social prescriptions engage older adults in forming new friendships and connections and build capacity and community. In a time when many are isolated, we believe in small projects that have BIG impacts.
I also work with a team that I call the Sis Squad: Kassandra Fernandes, MPH, PhD Student in Health & Rehabilitation Sciences, and Melissa Dafoe, BSW. With educational and practical experience in gerontology and community health and wellbeing promotion, we work together on creative, innovative projects that engage older adults and support them in aging BIG.
