Jo Ann attended the Hawaii Book & Music Festival in Honolulu. Before addressing an enthusiastic audience of people of all ages, she was presented with a proclamation declaring May 6 AARP Day in Honolulu because of AARP’s help in developing an action plan to improve the quality of life for residents. “I wrote the book Disrupt Aging to change the conversation in this country about what it means to grow older. It’s not about aging, it’s about living.” Hawaii, welcome to our movement!
