With aging populations and dwindling birth rates in many developed countries. healthy aging and end of life care are becoming an increasing challenge. A multidisciplinary approach by scholars from Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China, Mongolia, and the U.S. addresses these issues and discuss leading aging policy developments across the Pacific. Speakers explore ethical issues, initiatives to address the emerging global aging crisis, and ultimately seek to build a regional network among scholars and practitioners across Asia and the United States.
Each of the three webinar sessions, to be held online on September 9, 16, and 23, will deal with a different region of Asia. The webinar program, containing the agenda, abstracts, and brief biographical statements of the speakers, can be downloaded from this website.
