The United States is facing unprecedented growth in the number and proportion of its elder population, with Americans aged 65 and older expected to reach 71 million, representing one-fifth of the country’s total population, in the next 20 years. This demographic shift poses significant challenges and opportunities to ensure that all aging individuals have the ability to lead healthy, productive and independent lives.

Come hear a vision for the future of our society as well as some of the unique programs currently supporting the Bay Area’s senior communities. All are welcome to join us as we address the pressing needs of an aging society and continue our exploration of the grand challenges in social work.
