Event Description


Whether you're an employer who needs to support an older workforce; a healthcare worker preparing to serve an aging patient base; a professional seeking to delay retirement and update your skillset; or a caregiver juggling the needs of elderly parents — the aging of America will affect decisions about your career, health and loved ones.

Join Laura N. Gitlin, dean of Drexel’s College of Nursing and Health Professions, James C. Appleby, CEO of The Gerontological Society of America and Robyn Stone, senior vice president of the LeadingAge LTSS Center at UMass Boston for an insightful discussion about navigating this profound demographic shift. Also learn how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our global aging community and how we can work to better protect this vulnerable population. 

Recognized by the AFU Global Network, Drexel is proud to be named Philadelphia’s first Age-Friendly University (AFU).
