The aging of America is one of the most significant demographic forces that will shape our lives – from large-scale economic, political and cultural challenges and opportunities to deeply personal decisions about our careers, 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; Helen Lamont, long-term care policy analyst at the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Disability, Aging, and Long-Term Care Policy; and Robyn Stone, senior vice president of the LeadingAge LTSS Center at UMass Boston for an insightful discussion about navigating this profound demographic shift.

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 aging parents – you’ll learn more about how to thrive in the new normal.

After the reception and panel discussion, tour the Decatur House. This National Trust Historic Site is a shining example of Federal-style architecture and a testament to our capital’s complex past.
