Description

The World Health Organization has deemed "Aging and Health" the theme of this year's World Health Day, observed on April 4, recognizing its importance as a global issue. As the United States moves toward a new demographic landscape—by 2020 the number of Americans older than the traditional retirement age will have grown considerably—policy implications and innovation are likely to follow at home and abroad. Please join Michael Hodin, Robert Hormats, and Jane Shaw to discuss what is in store for a rapidly graying United States with a focus on the public and private sectors.
