WASHINGTON D.C. – March 30, 2017 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – AARP returns to Hispanicize, to reveal the secrets on how to to enjoy a life full of health, financial resilience and personal fullfillment. AARP brings to life its multigenerational and upbeat Spanish language brand campaign, “Dedicarte a ti es hacer más por tu familia” (Doing more for yourself helps you do more for your family) through an interactive booth experience and an influencer panel session, “Living Your Best Life at Any Age.”

“Recognizing that Hispanics 50-plus oftentimes put the needs of their families above their own, AARP has come to Hispanicize to connect directly with them and show why it’s best to take care of yourself so that you can be a better provider for others,” said Yvette Peña, Vice President of Multicultural Leadership Hispanic/Latino Audience Strategy at AARP. “Salud, dinero y amor are the central themes that unite all of us in our pursuit of happiness and AARP promises to be there every step of the way.”

“We are excited to have AARP as part of Hispanicize this year given the value they offer to Hispanics, especially those that are 50-plus. Here, the brand is well positioned to engage with influencers who can spread the word on how benefits to its members can also be enjoyed by everyone in the family,” said Manny Ruiz, CEO of Hispanicize Media Group. “AARP’s participation at Hispanicize shows its commitment to serve the Hispanic community.”

The “Living Your Best Life at Any Age” panel discussion offers Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers , as well as Millennial influencers (with followers above the age of 50), the means to live a balanced life where ‘doing more for yourself helps you do more for your family.’ With expertise in health, financial resilience and personal fulfillment, each panelist will share how AARP’s programs and services can help people achieve a balanced life regardless of age.
