AS11 Social Policy and Economics training course

The older population continues to grow and impacts a multitude of public policies. As the number of elderly in the global population increases dramatically, concerns about the cost of living longer and caring for health concerns has become a focus of social debate. Debates have arisen concerning Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security and how to approach these programs with a growing population of older adults requiring more health care services. This course will discuss shifts occurring in aging globally, economic challenges for a growing aging population, rising costs of health care and the connected challenges, and the specific concerns about Social Security.
