After retirement, many older adults don't see many options for themselves and all their free time. Geriatrician Linda Fried theorized that “We as a nation have not figured out what the roles are for people in their retirement years." In 1995, she helped design the Experience Corps program, which promotes the well-being of older adults by placing them in public schools, where they participate in the literacy development of children in kindergarten through third grade. In this talk, Dr. Fried will trace the origins and significance of programs to engage the wealth of energy and knowledge the elderly can provide.

The ASA-NCOA 2009 Aging in America Conference provides a unique opportunity to bring together professionals in the field of aging to address specific topics in care coordination that impact the widespread availability of this important service to older adults in need.

Given the multiplicity of care coordination programs, it is necessary to discover common ground among the different approaches and work together in order to make care coordination a more universal practice. This forum will build on the work of the National Coalition for Care Coordination (N3C), a group founded by The New York Academy of Medicine and the American Society on Aging.

Studying Alzheimer’s disease has often been wrapped up in arguments over whether it should be regarded as a disease or as an extreme variant of normal aging processes. This talk by Penn State historian of science Jess Ballenger analyzes how these arguments reflect broader changes in social and cultural attitudes toward aging and the elderly, and argues that they have had important if largely unexamined political and moral consequences.
