State College, Pennsylvania: The compelling docu-drama FaceAge will premiere at The State Theatre at 7:00PM Thursday evening October 25, 2018.

FaceAge is an award-winning film for both young and older adults that creatively applies the lens of aging to challenge stereotypes and trigger self-reflection around deeply held assumptions about beauty, wealth, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and health.

The extraordinary 56-minute, six-part FaceAge film will be introduced by Laureate Professor and film creator Andy Belser. The evening event will include special remarks by the Director of the Center for Healthy Aging, Dr. Martin Sliwinski, and Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies, Dr. Celia Cook-Huffman.

FaceAge is a powerful, satisfying look at the similar challenges of aging that all generations face. The artistic weave of dialogue among twelve individuals leads viewers to a breakthrough understanding between the generations.

FaceAge feeds the desire to seek new information and novel experiences. The film is an emotionally exhilarating experience that expands viewers’ curiosity, creativity, and optimism.

FaceAge is a film experience for all generations.

The FaceAge Premiere is a chance to experience this great event locally before it debuts nationally in 2019.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Penn State Research on addressing Alzheimers Disease and related Dementia. Tickets can be purchased on the State Theatre’s website.

​Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Aging today announced that older adults who will soon be turning 65 and are not yet enrolled in Medicare can attend a free virtual event to learn about their healthcare coverage options when enrolling for Medicare.


The "Welcome to Medicare" event on June 23, open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., will feature national presentations from the State Health Insurance Assistance Programs on Medicare eligibility, enrollment and coverage options. Representatives will be available to answer questions and assist older adults with information to enable them to make choices on Medicare coverage that best meets their needs and lowers their costs.


In Pennsylvania, this program is known as APPRISE. Throughout the national presentation, staff from APPRISE will host an exhibit for Pennsylvania and will respond to Medicare questions and provide information about the program. The Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly (CARIE) – Pennsylvania's Senior Medicare Patrol – also will join APPRISE to discuss Medicare fraud prevention.


"We encourage anyone who is turning 65 soon to join our Virtual Welcome to Medicare Fair. Pennsylvania's Medicare Counseling Program is here to help older adults learn about signing up and navigating the complexities of Medicare, avoiding late enrollment penalties, and preventing fraud," said Susan Neff, APPRISE director. "We also invite those who attend to visit the Pennsylvania-specific virtual exhibit at any time during the event. The APPRISE and CARIE staff look forward to chatting with seniors about their Medicare enrollment concerns."


Older adults can register for this event here


The APPRISE Program has nearly 800 trained counselors in the commonwealth who provide free, confidential, objective, and easy-to-understand information about original Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, prescription drug plans, and Medicare Supplement plans, and allows Medicare beneficiaries to compare plans and determine what best meets their needs and save them money.
