As the United States undergoes a transformation from a young to an old society, it is essential we address the problems individuals face as they age and prepare for the opportunities longer lives afford. Widespread pessimism in individuals, policy makers and even the scientific community about the inevitability of age-related decline divert attention from potentially solvable problems, which leads to ageism. This web seminar will outline a research agenda that addresses three issues often overlooked in the traditional literature on ageism: the pressing need to understand the role ageism plays in workforce participation and performance; the ways in which ageism may limit the effectiveness of interventions to improve health in older populations; and, failure in much scientific research to differentiate between pathological and normal aging, thus producing overly negative conclusions about the effects of aging.
