Global Conference 2011

In the coming years, demographic shifts will cause profound transformations in America and around the globe. The imperatives created by aging populations threaten to swamp economies and place unprecedented burdens on the next generation. A host of challenges must be addressed, from physical health and financial well-being to community engagement and senior employment. Some of these issues pose major policy dilemmas, but the implications aren't all dire. We're on the cusp of accelerating disease cures, setting the stage for seniors to enjoy better health and quality of life as they age. And the graying population is already rewriting the rulebook for retirement. Seniors have new options for staying active, engaged and productive through wellness and disease management programs, continuing education, encore careers, social networks and travel. Our panel of experts will address the key challenges and opportunities in a thought-provoking session.
