Aging: The Opportunity For Continuing Education

The headlines scream, “Millennial generation is bigger, more diverse than boomers.” Another reads, ”10 million Americans turn age 65 everyday.” What’s missing from the headlines? A dialogue on the need for continuing education programs to introduce business and health promotion classes for adult learners for all ages.

Continuing Education leaders are uniquely poised to bridge the information gap for an aging population. Remember, in 2050 as the youngest baby boomers reach age 85, their oldest millennial grandchildren will be ready to receive their AARP cards.

Select this proposal and transform the conversation about aging.
