Will the Aging of America Be a Triumph or a Tragedy? Why Aren’t Our Presidential Candidates Addressing It?

–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#agewave–Age Wave:

What: Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D. is a renowned psychologist,
gerontologist, documentary filmmaker, author of 16 books on aging,
health and work, and chief executive of Age Wave. You’re invited to join
a no-holds-barred press briefing hosted by Dychtwald (via conference
call) to raise awareness of the five aging-related transpartisan issues
every presidential candidate must address.

Who: All broadcast, print, and online journalists interested in
national issues of utmost importance

When: Thursday, April 21 at 1:00 – 1:45 pm ET/10:00 – 10:45 am PT
(including Q&A)

Where: Dial-in: (844) 231-3521 Conference ID: 95008621

Please email questions in advance of the call and/or during the call
to
agewave@agewave.com.

Why: An “age wave” is coming that could either make or break
America. With relatively flat fertility rates, rising longevity and
10,000 baby boomers turning 70 every day, America is becoming a
“gerontocracy.” Dychtwald believes that anyone wishing to be our next
president should indicate their knowledge of and priorities regarding
the medical, scientific, economic, employment, infrastructure and
intergenerational dimensions of this coming demographic
transformation. After watching every minute of every debate, he’s
extremely frustrated that the candidates of all persuasions have not
been focused on this issue and all its facets – in proportion to its
social, political and economic importance. During the call and Q&A,
Dychtwald will cover the biggest challenges ahead – and the specific
questions the media should be asking that all presidential candidates
should be prepared to answer.
