Dr. Tracey Gendron serves as Chair for the Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Gerontology and as Director for the Virginia Center on Aging. She has Master’s degree in Gerontology and Psychology, and a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology. Tracey is dedicated to raising awareness and ending ageism through education. Her book, Ageism Unmasked, peels back the layers to expose how cultural norms and unconscious prejudices have seeped into our lives, silently shaping our treatment of others based on their age and our own misconceptions about aging - and even about ourselves. Offering an all-inclusive approach, Tracey reveals the biases behind our false understanding of aging, sharing powerful opportunities for personal growth along with strategies to help create an anti-ageist society.
