Active Life Stories:
Video & TV programs

 

Active Life Stories seek to debunk the myths of aging--
such as all old people are sick or cranky or inflexible. They're not!

Our programs show how people in their 70s, 80s, and 90s are continuing their careers, starting new activities, exploring alternative life styles, and generally living life to the fullest within their capabilities.

Active Life programs are broadcast on
the Manhattan Neighborhood Network in NYC
