Keeping Up With Our Chief Age Disruptor
UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs
Rethinking the Course of Life With the Next Generation
America’s future aging population was the subject of Jo Ann’s lecture at the Luskin School of Public Affairs at the University of California, Los Angeles. As 65-plus continues to be the fastest-growing age demographic, living those years fully and embracing your age were her key messages. For UCLA Luskin students in particular, Jo Ann asked them to rethink how they want to live their life and how they might affect public policy changes — assuming they will live well into their 80s, 90s and even 100s.
