Call to Action: Regarding Ageist Reader’s Digest Article


Did you see that Reader's Digest article - "14 Exercises To Never Do After Age 50"? I'll save you the time...It was terrible & caused an outrage on social media.

This morning, I published a Response Video on the Institute of Clinical Excellence page. The video highlights the issues with the article & a call to publish a more evidence-based follow up article. As I'm writing this email:
  • >11,000 views & >300 shares
  • The title of the article changed to "14 Exercises You Should Modify If You're Over 50"
  • & received a message from the Digital Managing Editor of Reader's Digest regarding the article
Help us send a message that OldWeak & the perpetual ageism found in media needs to come to an end.
