Preparing for the 'silver wave'
As the population of seniors and pre-seniors continues to rise, cities across the country and around the world must be better prepared to meet their needs. Austin is an age friendly city, with an age friendly action plan, that allows seniors to age in the place of their choosing, while also cultivating a community of connection and support. For ORAU, the growing field of geroscience gives us opportunities to apply our capabilities in support of the aging population. We talk to Ashley Golden, Ph.D., ORAU biostatistician, and Tabitha Taylor, program coordinator for Austin's Age-Friendly City program about the nation's and the world's changing demographics.
