Preparing Our Communities 

Presentations from  the October 5, 2010 Community Dialogue

As the population continues to age, it is projected that nationally, the percentage of people 65 years and older will double by 2030,
the majority of which will be women. The community dialogue on women and aging was designed to assist in preparing the stakeholder
community for the dramatic increase in the number of aging women and facilitate the integration of 'women and aging' issues into their
future organizational plans.
