After the Election: What’s Next for the Age-Inclusive Society?
On November 4, 2020, Bob Blancato, national aging policy expert, explored how the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election might shape the future and our thinking of aging. A question we addressed, how do we reframe our perception and act upon who is old or older in society? While policies designed to address the invisibility of age are associated with age discrimination, our post-election era gives us an opportunity to explore how future policy could extend to health, wellness, and the pursuit of a life well lived.
