AARP is Listening in Multicultural Communities

What Tyler-Horton has learned is information crucial to fulfilling the dreams of all as they age, and connecting these dreams with AARP’s services and programs can make a huge difference. AARP cannot solve all of the problems, but working together with community programs, non-profit organizations, churches and individuals, we can fulfill many needs and help entire communities change.
 
Along with continuing to hold listening sessions throughout the year, Tyler-Horton’s ongoing commitment to helping change whole communities has her telling AARP’s story on the radio on Raleigh’s WNNL (103.9 The Light) on the first Sunday of every month (6:30-7:00 a.m.) and on the second and fourth Sunday mornings of each month on Raleigh’s WAUG (750 AM) from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. Here she provides information about AARP programs and services and engages individuals in sharing their stories. As a result, others can hear real life on the air, from people who look and sound like them.
 
One example of Tyler-Horton’s collaborative work on behalf of AARP North Carolina is with Southeast Raleigh Assembly (SERA), located in the heart of a predominately African American community. There AARP has been one of the sponsors for “Dancing in the Park,” an exercise program that brings together people of all ages every Monday during the summer months. AARP has also been on-site to speak and to provide information about our programs and services and to take part in discussions about nutrition and other health matters.

Further, AARP is supporting SERA’s program “Living Life to the Fullest through Self-Love (LLFS). This is a preventive health and wellness program designed to create an understanding of the power area residents have to extend their lifespan, create health and wellness in their own lives and live fully by practicing some very simple steps.
 
AARP will work with SERA as we coordinate with local small businesses; barber shops, salons and faith institutions to educate the community through various activities. These include taking blood pressure readings and counseling program participants, as well as creating onsite opportunities for follow-up and facilitating preventive medicine training from local health professionals. This partnership is vital to the Southeast Raleigh community as AARP helps African Americans enhance their ability to live longer and fuller lives.

AARP is listening to African Americans and others among adults 50+ about what is important to them, and the survey and listening sessions are among several tools that AARP leaders will use on both the state and national level to guide the association’s work in the near future, particularly in diverse communities. AARP North Carolina will use this valuable information to redouble its efforts to help all North Carolinians age 50+ live their best life.
