When Ashton Applewhite, the 2016 Aging Influencer of the Year of Next Avenue, recommends someone for your Caregiver Smile Summit to speak about ageism, you take her up on the offer. That person is Cathy Bollinger.
Cathy is the Managing Director of Embracing Aging York County (PA) Community Foundation and heads their long-term initiative, Embracing Aging. At the invitation of Chairman Collins and Ranking Member Casey, Cathy was one of four witnesses selected to present testimony at the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging in May 2017. Clearly, she knows what she is talking about!
