During the session, titled "How the Boomers Will Transform Aging and How Aging Will Transform the Boomers", panelists will address a number of topics, including: How will maturity change as tens of millions of us live to 80, 90 or 100+? How will the boomers’ celebration of “middlescence” shift the cultural epicenter while redefining all of life’s stages? Who will pay for the multiplying needs of a multiplying cohort of older adults? Are we prepared to reengineer many of our products and services to meet the needs of maturing boomer consumers? Will boomers become more self-indulgent or more socially generous as they age? How will boomers deal with “right-to-death” issues? Can our political system handle the demands that tens of millions of elder boomers will place on our social and economic infrastructure?


We hope you can make it! Click here to RSVP now!

The General Session is on Sunday April 1 from 9:30 to 11:15 am at the Marriott Wardman Park Ballroom in Washington DC (2660 Woodley Road, NW).
