Aging is inevitable, but increasingly consumers are seeking to age on their own terms by exerting more control over their health and well-being than ever before. A wave of market solutions has emerged to meet consumer demand and contain healthcare costs by providing information, technology and tools that have enabled self-empowered consumers. But not all of the benefits are evenly spread, and many older adults are at risk of being bypassed by innovations that could benefit them. Some developments, particularly in the genetics field, have also raised thorny ethical questions. Bill Walsh, Director of Strategy, Planning and Executive Communications at AARP, will explore the factors that have given rise to self-empowered aging, the scientific basis for some of the most popular consumer solutions and the ethical, financial and public policy challenges in consumers seizing control over their own aging. This event is funded in part by the Archstone Foundation as part of the Generations Education Series. PLEASE NOTE: CEUs for this event are no longer available.
