WHAT:

 

On July 11, 2013 Pfizer and Generations United will release results of an inter-generational survey of Atlanta respondents attitudes towards aging. The “2013 Get Old Survey” reveals that Atlanta-area residents of all ages are concerned about their ability to get old the way they want, and feel their communities are not prepared to support an aging population.

Deborah M. Whitley, PhD, MPH, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, Georgia State University

WHY:

 

Americans are living longer and aspire to live better than ever before. But living longer creates its own set of challenges that many of us still aren’t dealing with. Many of the chronic conditions plaguing Americans can be prevented by taking charge of our health and living better.
