Event Details

Telling Impactful Stories at the Intersections of Aging, Equity, Caregiving, the Environment and Advocacy

Join a panel of leaders in the aging industry as they share foundational concepts journalists of all ages must know, to effectively cover aging in America — the story impacting millions of American families. The U.S. Census Bureau, projects by 2030 all baby boomers will be age 65. By 2034, older adults are projected to outnumber those 18 and younger for the first time in U.S. history. AARP estimates 53 million Americans already serve as unpaid family caregivers. This session will explore ‘aging’ stories across housing, transportation, health care, caregiving, employment and climate. Racial inequities and systematic racism often compound these growing societal challenges.
