Colin Milner, Founder and CEO of the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) To Speak at Park Springs on Thursday, June 7
On Thursday, June 7 at 2PM, Colin Milner, founder and CEO of the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) and a leading authority on the health and well-being of older adults, will discuss ICAA and its current ‘Changing the Way We Age’ campaign with Park Springs’ members, staff and guests.
“It is a thrill for us to welcome Colin Milner to Park Springs, especially since Park Springs is a Life Care Services community, and LCS is an ICAA partner,” says Kevin Isakson, Director of Sales and Marketing of Park Springs, the premier continuing care retirement community right outside Atlanta.
“Milner’s expertise and his efforts to change how people and societies all over the world view aging have inspired many governmental organizations, corporations and media outlets to seek his insights,” notes Isakson. “We are honored that he is making the time to come talk with our members, many of whom enjoy the active lifestyle and resort-style amenities offered at Park Springs.”
For the past four years, Milner has been invited by the World Economic Forum to serve on its network of Global Agenda Councils, recognizing him as one of ‘the most innovative and influential minds’ in the world on aging-related topics. A prolific and award-winning writer, Milner has authored more than 250 articles and is a contributing blogger to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Be Active Your Way blog. In addition, Milner recently contributed a chapter to the World Economic Forum’s book Global Population Ageing: Peril or Promise?
The event on June 7 is free and open to the public, though visitors are requested to make a reservation by calling (678) 684-3300 or online at ParkSprings.com.
