Careers in Aging Week
Description:

April 6-12, 2014 is National Careers in Aging Week!  This event is an annual joint venture between The Gerontological Society of America and its educational branch, the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education.  The purpose of this event is to bring greater awareness and visibility to the wide-ranging career opportunities in aging and aging research. 

Did you know that every 8 seconds someone turns 60 in the United States?  The aging of America's population is resulting in a shortage of people trained to meet the unique needs of older adults.  Knowledge of aging is relevant to almost every area of study, and the minor in gerontology at WKU prepares students to work in a wide variety of settings including including health and wellness companies, senior housing, advocacy and policy organizations, financial services, biotechnology, social service agencies, and academic and research settings.  Learn more about careers in aging here.

As part of our celebration of Careers in Aging Week, WKU Aging is recognizing some of our wonderful gerontology students!  Check out our Gerontology Student Spotlight to see just a few examples of how the minor in gerontology enhances the wide variety of interests, majors and career goals of our students.  If you are interested in learning more about WKU Aging, email Marybeth Hunt.

Webinar The Political Environment of Age-Friendliness
Location: FREE WEBINAR
Description:

A large component of what shapes our identity is our sense of place - a place to call home, an environment to relate to and a community that embraces every stage of our lives.  The concept of age-friendly communities and cities has been adapted and applied in many different ways worldwide.  Increasingly the term "age-friendly" is an important pillar to the strategic plans of all levels of government.  There is no doubt that building an environment for people of all ages will yield significant social and economic benefits.

What does it mean to decision-makers and politicians for their community to be age-friendly? Is it an attractive proposition and if so, how can the business case be made for political-buy in and engagement that brings with it funds?  Political buy-in is frequently identified as a barrier that impedes the progress of many Age-Friendly Initiatives globally.  Our speakers, Dr. Margaret Neal andMr. Hugh O'Connor,  have been at the coalface of these thorny issues and overcome the odds to lead two of the most impressive set of age-friendly scenarios in the world.
