Changing the Conversation About Aging  
-by Kelly Laflamme, EH Program Director  
As we implement our new five-year strategic plan at the Endowment for Health, we are putting our mouth where our money is...and changing the way we talk about our work to create an age-friendly NH.  
Following the advice of national experts, our work has a new name, the Healthy Aging Initiative. We are not just changing a name, we are working to change a mindset.  
The Endowment for Health supports good health at every age and stage of life. For the past five years, we have been purposeful in developing a collective approach to advance an age-friendly New Hampshire and improve the opportunities for healthy aging. This work established the NH Alliance for Healthy Aging, a movement of stakeholders across the Granite State developing and implementing creative strategies and important policies related to healthy aging.

It's far worse when your audience hears the message but misinterprets your intent. This happens more often than we like to think.
