The Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center and the ILC USA, in collaboration with Columbia University’s Journalism School, once again hosted the Age Boom Academy in New York from September 8-10, 2013.  The theme of the seminar, “Aging in America: The Costs and Benefits,” brought together journalists and experts in the aging field to explore several issues associated with population aging in the United States, including: family and caregiving; the social safety net (i.e., Social Security) and social insurance (e.g., Medicare and Medicaid); the role of urban design in successful aging; market-based changes in health care; opportunities for corporations during a time of profound demographic change; and, the structure and meaning of work.
