A physician with a passion for helping the elders will bring his new Age of Disruption Tour to Chattanooga’s Barking Legs Theater on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.
As a physician working in a nursing home, Thomas became fascinated with finding ways to help elders live more fulfilling lives. Since then, he has written several books on aging, including his latest: “Second Wind: Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper, More Connected Life.” He also founded ChangingAging.org to help others access his information.
Thomas now considers himself a “disrupter” of the many stigmas surrounding aging. His thesis is clear: “Everything we think we know about getting older is wrong.”
Throughout the 90-minute “nonfiction theater” performance, Thomas will argue that “society has twisted things around and created a diminished picture of age and aging.”
