May is Older Americans Month and it was first established 60 years ago by President John F. Kennedy as a way to raise awareness of the challenges older adults face, from inadequate health insurance to questions around sufficient savings for retirement. While those challenges may still exist for far too many of our elders, I think it’s safe to say that older adults today are very different than older adults were six decades ago. And, my guest today is a true example. A bodybuilder who gained international acclaim for her commitment to living her best life – and even has been featured in a Beyonce video – it’s my honor to have the one and only Ms. Ernestine Shepherd on this edition of Notes from the Council Chambers.
