Program Description

This program is designed to inform participants of factors that affect healthy aging among minority elders and how best to consider ethical implications for public health interventions. This educational activity is designed to reduce the gap in awareness regarding factors that affect healthy aging among minority elders.

This forum will address the educational gap through increasing participants’ ability to describe – the epidemiology of minority elders in the U.S.; how to effectively recognize and support resilience among minority elders; challenges encountered by minority elders; the biological, social, and cultural factors that impact healthy aging among minority elders; and approaches for achieving healthy aging for minority elders.
