Ryan Frederick of SmartLiving 360 Selected as Encore Public Voices Fellow

Frederick Selected as One of Twenty Fellows Out of a Pool of Nearly 200 Candidates

Baltimore, Md. (August 15, 2018) – SmartLiving 360 Founder, Ryan Frederick, has been selected as one of twenty leaders in the inaugural cohort of this special fellowship. This cohort brings together leading thinkers who are working at the intersection of aging, longevity and social justice (racial, gender, economic and beyond). Participants will be provided with extraordinary support, skills and mentoring to ensure their ideas shape the greater public conversation.

“I am excited for this unbelievable opportunity to help amplify my vision in the fields of aging and longevity,” says Frederick. “I believe that more people should look to thrive, not just survive, in the age of longevity and, along the way, embrace more opportunities to develop intergenerational opportunities.”

Mr. Frederick and SmartLiving 360 along with Federal Realty Investment Trust developed The Stories at Congressional Plaza, an innovative intergenerational apartment building in a walkable, mixed-use area of Rockville, MD, a suburb of Washington D.C.

The Encore Public Voices fellowship is a collaboration among Encore.org, The OpEd Project, and Ann MacDougall. The OpEd Project is a think tank and leadership organization that expands history by accelerating the ideas and public impact of underrepresented voices, including women. Ann MacDougall, the former president of Encore.org, will serve as a senior advisor to the Encore Public Voices Fellowship. The Advisory Council is comprised of a small group of outstanding social innovators and media professionals.
