This webinar was the second in a two-part series targeted at community health workers (promotoras).
National Council on Aging hosted a webinar that explored the trends and population issues developing as the population of older adults, particularly the “Baby Boomers”, continues to increase. The webinar explored key economic security and health issues that affect this population and need to be considered when working with this group, with a specific focus on aging Latinos/as.
Attendees of this webinar learned about:
- Key data on older adults: age, racial/ethnic background, poverty/economic situation, English proficiency/language, health status, and technology use.
- The future outlook and projections for how these trends will evolve over the next few decades.
- Critical resources available in the community to assist this population.
