+ The Graying of America (KIN MPR)
[02:00 PM - 04:00 PM]
Enroll for HF4128 through TXClass.
(Diversity: Awareness) We're living longer and healthier lives, but an increasingly older population means an increasing pull on government entitlement programs. A new analysis on global aging from Standard & Poor's indicates that "no other force is likely to shape the future of national economic health, public finances, and policymaking as the irreversible rate at which the world's population is aging." This session will explore the effects of the Graying of America.
Learning Outcome: Participants will become familiar with how the aging population is influencing Social Security, Medicare, long-term care, public pensions and other financial-support programs.
