Understanding the effects of rapidly changing political forces on the aging population
The world’s population is aging, posing challenges to policy makers and health care, financial, and other service providers. The Public Policy in Gerontology Certificate from Utica College is a graduate-level program consisting of courses designed to address politics and policy in the lives of aging generations.
Forecasts show that policy makers must address the impact of our aging population in the next decade to stay ahead of the demand on resources required by a population with an increasing median age. Policy makers require insight into the characteristics of this aging population. They must understand the differences in needs occasioned by its cultural diversity, as well as the economic constraints that affect their policy choices.
