The aging services industry needs good leaders in order to keep pace with America’s shifting demographics. ASA’s key goal is to support and enhance the knowledge and skills of people who work to improve the quality of life of older adults and their families, and we fulfill this goal by developing and mentoring members’ leadership skills and growth. Our fast-track Leadership Academy supports those already in a rewarding career, but who are seeking leadership positions. And the two-decades old New Ventures in Leadership program supports leaders of color. The leadership landing page is an especially useful resource that gives information about those dynamic programs, while featuring stories and webinar content on careers in aging, re-careering in other directions, mentoring and its many benefits, staff development, and more.

The Impacts of Climate Change Take a Heavier Toll on Older Women

posted 04.09.2018

By G. Adriana Perez

The outsize impact of climate change on older women should be a national health priority for clinicians, scientists and professionals working in public health. Women account for 56.7 percent of adults ages 65 and older in the United States, and at ages 85 and older, they outnumber men by a ratio of five to two. Because women continue to outlive men, most older women live alone and may depend upon their social and community networks for assistance.

Disaster Preparedness & Elders: There’s Room for Improvement

posted 04.09.2018

By Lisa M. Brown

During 2017, 15 major natural disasters occurred in the United States. Differences exist be­tween these types of disasters in terms of extent (e.g., timing, duration) and impact (e.g., loss of life, loss of community). The interaction of extent and impact influences how peo­ple prepare for future disasters, how they evacuate and how they experience and recover from such events.
