People aged 65 and over are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States and around the world. This massive demographic shift will challenge society on every front, including:

    • healthcare, disease prevention, managing chronic conditions, end of life care
    • housing, transportation, and all kinds of design
    • employment and workforce
    • ethics, discrimination, and aging
    • economics and public policy

University of Minnesota gerontology researchers are working toward solutions that will improve the lives of older people in Minnesota and beyond.
