Listening sessions with lived experiences of adults in mid- (45-59 years old) and late- (60 years and older) life is an opportunity for engagement toward understanding and responding to health and those issues that relate to or impact health status. Listening is a source of information, affirmation, and observation from the community’s perspectives. The emotional effects of stressors, especially during the YOWB, influence the quality of life, affecting healthspan (a portion of life spent in good health), and resilience (the capacity to resist, adapt, recover, and grow from a challenge or a stressor). The purpose is to provide opportunities for adults in mid-and late life to engage in active listening. where they share each other’s experiences to enhance resilience and healthspan. Participants need to tell their stories about their healthspan experiences, expressed without judgment in a community-centered perspective through listening sessions. We aim to 1) establish a welcoming environment for listening, 2) actively listen to the lived health and illness experiences, 3) utilize active listening skills for conversations on healthspan, and 4) acquire a better understanding of resilience from community participants. Four listening sessions will be convened in 3 Pitt Community Engagement Centers (CEC) and an Asian/Filipino Community Center.
