Every community has different challenges when it comes to health and well-being, and those who live and work locally often generate creative solutions. That understanding was the driving force behind our selection of the AARP Well-Being Champions. First announced in late 2017, these 10 community leaders – all of whom are age 50 plus – were chosen for their outstanding work in conceiving, developing, and implementing creative solutions that are fostering a Culture of Health in their communities. In addition to honoring their achievements, we want to inspire you to generate new solutions for your community.  Here is a brief description of each Champion’s work.

There was a time when we couldn't wait for things to change - for school to end and the summer to begin, to go away to college, to find a job, to find a better job, to find a partner, and perhaps find a better partner, to watch our kids grow up. But now we are just as likely to fear change, especially if we become preoccupied with the unpleasant ones that come with age.
