Dr. Bill Thomas, 54, Elderhood Ambassador.
Named by the Wall Street Journal as a “top 12 innovator” changing aging and retirement in the 21st century. He and his wife Judith co-founded The Eden Alternative, a global nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of elders, caregivers and de-institutionalizing nursing homes.

Instead of “defying or fighting” growing older, he embraces aging and a life beyond adulthood called Elderhood. “Life after 50 should be the richest, deepest and most meaningful phase of life,” says Thomas.

In his recent book, “Second Wind,” he encourages boomers and seniors to choose a slower and more balanced life. Moving from Adulthood to Elderhood is a positive, healthy thing. ChangingAging.org
