The Columbia Aging Center has launched a digital narrative project, “Exceeding Expectations.”

It is a project led by the Center’s Dorian Block, a journalist, and Ruth Finkelstein, an anthropologist and health policy expert. The beautifully-illustrated content features stories about the daily lives of 20 New Yorkers over the age of 81 who are passionately engaged in their lives and communities. A 2-minute video may be viewed on the website and visitors are encouraged to sign up and follow new chapters in each person’s story appearing over the next many weeks.

The video is available to view below.
