Webcast: June 16 – Private Practice Division – A Road Map for Age-Friendly Communities – Speakers: Mildred Warner, Ph.D.; Jana Lynott, AICP; Alan Dela Torre, Ph.D.; Ramona Mullahey

America is aging:  The most dramatic change is in the 65-74 year old age category with the age wave of the Baby Boomer generation with far-reaching economic and socio-political consequences.  Population aging is viewed as a challenge and burden, especially, for communities unprepared for this demographic change.  Real progress will occur when challenge is transformed to opportunity.   APA’s Aging in Community Policy Guide can help frame planning solutions that foster new conversations, new coalitions, and new shared strategies that link the generations successfully to build livable communities for all.  In this session, planners will explore a community's capacity to foster aging-in-community in transportation, housing and community supports and connections:  three of the six Guiding Policies in the Policy Guide.
