Advancing Equity in Aging from American Society on Aging
Advancing Equity in Aging will bring together experts, leaders in the field and practitioners to help you and your organization take steps toward a more inclusive, equitable aging society. The evidence is clear – our aging experience is shaped dramatically by experiences throughout our lives, and vast inequities exist in access to education, jobs, housing, healthcare, social networks and more. Advancing Equity in Aging will take you from looking at this from the macro level all the way to a micro level, while we dive into how to make systemic changes through thoughtful advances in your organization and your own life.
