Health & Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG) is hosting a series of discussions around economic security. We will feature local experts to better inform advocates and stakeholders about current policies and issues that impact your community.
September 27, 2012 Lunch & Learn…We discussed the current outlook for retirement for older adults (recent studies, actuarial analysis, an overview of pensions, Social Security, Medicare etc.) and how it all comes together. Then we discussed how these issues are being addressed in the media – especially with the campaigning for the upcoming Presidential election. Our guest speakers were: Anna Rappaport, expert in aging, public policy and retirement and Martha Holstein, expert in aging, ethics and health policy.
