Kansas is a state of many natural resources. It is home to hardworking industrious people. However, one "natural resource" has not been tapped to its fullest potential nor have the continuing contributions of this "natural resource" been widely heralded. The resource is older Kansans.
This website will bring you stories of older people who have quietly, with little fanfare, made a difference in their communities and in our state. These are not the 'usually visible' people, but regular people leading regular lives, while making important differences and continuing to enrich the lives of the people and communities around them.
If you know of one of these remarkable people, please contact us. We want to know them too.
Changing the Conversation is a cooperative project of the Kansas Sampler Foundation and the Wichita State University Regional Institute on Aging.
