The U.S. population is aging: The number of Americans 65 and older is expected to double over the next 40 years. This demographic shift will place new demands on our health care system, care infrastructure and economic safety net. Systems that are already strained will need investment and innovation. The time to plan and act is now. How can we create equitable communities and environments that allow people to live fully as they age?
The 19th is bringing together experts in senior care, economics and health policy for big conversations on the steps we need to take to allow Americans to age well.
