Future Centenarian Projects

Lynn is working on a second book on successful aging, which she expects to be published soon.  In it she reiterates a point she made in 1988 after her first Arizona study: Centenarians are a distinguished group of distinctive individuals.  As evidenced by contemporary centenarians over the past two decades, there is no one model centenarian and not one road to the age of 100.  Aging is individualized, and that is good news—it presents the possibility for each of us to make the most of whatever years we have. 
        And while the Spirit of active centenarians has remained consistent over the past 24 years, Lynn has found that what has changed noticeably is the health, vitality and activity level of more centenarians.  A greater number of the centenarian population today is both mentally and physically healthier and more active than their counterparts two decades ago, and this bodes well for the future of aging and for an improved quality of life for "boomers" and others in the years ahead.
        National Centenarian Awareness Project
is currently involved in several wide-ranging projects, in addition to Lynn's book in progress.  If you would like to recommend an active centenarian who would enjoy participating in an appropriate event or activity, please send us an e-mail.  We would love to hear from you.  Lynn's goal continues: to show and tell America what its eldest citizens are all about and the quality of life they are capable of enjoying!
