Presented by:
Nancy Morrow-Howell, PhD
Betty Bofinger Brown Distinguished Professor of Social Policy
Brown School

We all know that life expectancy has doubled in the last century. Our interpersonal relationships, service organizations and policies, community infrastructure, and norms about the life course -- all are changing as people live into their 8th and 9th decade of life and fewer children are being born. Outdated attitudes and practices limit the potential of the extension of human life; and social work and public health professionals play in role in social transformations to ensure quality of life for people of all ages. 

Join Dr. Morrow-Howell as she provides an overview of the professional and personal implications of the current demographic realities, as well as trends toward promoting wellness and age justice across the longer life span. 

This presentation is part of our Brown School Curriculum Showcase.
