Join us for this fantastic Aging GreatFULLy event featuring World Renowned, 2018 Guinness Book of World Record Gamer's Edition Record Winner, YouTube Icon & Famous Octogenarian Gamer, #ShirleyCurry! We will talk about how video game playing impacts physical, mental and social aspects of aging. And for an intergenerational perspective, we welcome a guest Aging GreatFULLy co-host, college student, Twitch affiliate, and life-long gamer, #ColtonStack to the show to expand and complement our convo! Can video games improve your health and longevity? Cognitive sharpness? Retirement? Social climate? Mental Health? You’ve got questions and we’ve got the one and only gaming superstar, Shirley Curry! At nearly 82 years old, Shirley has almost 300,000 YouTube subscribers. Her love of gaming began in the mid 1990’s when her son gave her a computer. But her huge following happened rather recently, in 2015, after a handful of subscribers prompted her to record her game play. Two-and-a-half years later, she is known around the world as the Gaming Grandma and a fantastic role model, highly regarded, by people of all ages. She will share her game play style, tell us what makes her YouTube channel different, let us know what she calls her viewers, discuss aging and gaming, tell us what makes her cry, offer advice for parents of gamers, discuss the gaming industry and SO MUCH MORE! Join us for this undeniable power-hour of enlightenment you won’t want to miss! One thing is for sure, if you haven’t considered gaming before this show, you may do so afterwards!
