4275.2 New Directions to Healthy Aging in the 21st Century

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Given the stark reality of the demographic and epidemiological transitions, this introductory session will briefly examine several important questions that will frame the subsequent presentations. How do demographic and epidemiological transitions challenge our current views and roles? What models can be used to help us frame and track efforts to support healthy aging? This session will begin to frame our examination of how we need to prepare to collectively address an aging population and implement a vision of positive change.
Session Objectives: 1. Define healthy aging; 2. Describe key models and roles for public health and aging.
