Meet Reggie Nance, Associate State Director for Multicultural Engagement for AARP New York, overseeing outreach to African-Americans, and Caribbean-Americans across the state. I recently had a chance to interview Reggie on my Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, where he discussed the many benefits AARP offers its members, which is 38 million strong in the United States and 2.6 million strong in New York State. Did you know that AARP provides free financial advice for its members along with free movie tickets and discounted tickets to Broadway shows, or that people 50 years of age or older are one of the fastest-growing entrepreneurial groups in the country? These facts and much more are shared in this very impactful interview with Reggie Nance.
Reggie believes that age is just a number and that is why on December 14th, AARP will host a panel discussion called “Disrupt Aging in Sports” at the Clyde Frazier restaurant in New York City, from 12 to 2 p.m. This event will bring out former professional athletes from major league baseball, football, and basketball, to discuss the importance of staying healthy and active while playing sports professionally and after retirement.
Reggie holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and American Literature from Brown University and credits his upbringing in a small town called Cordele, Georgia as the impetus for his love of community and why he is such a believer in giving back to the community.
