Each year the Pat Tillman Foundation features three Tillman Scholars to present a Make Your Mark talk highlighting their work and impact. This year PhD candidate, Emily Balog, was selected to speak about Ageism in America. Balog highlights how Translational Health Science can pave the way for communities to engage older adults in aging in place strategies and reduce the stigma of aging.

Her talk, along with the Tillman Champion awardees comedian Jon Stewart and veteran John Feal, can be viewed on the Pat Tillman Foundation website at https://pattillmanfoundation.org/tillman-honors/ or on the Tillman YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iYeTDKya_0&feature=youtu.be
