KU to host conference on interdisciplinary aging research (Conference)

Thursday November 07, 2013
All Day
The Oread, 1200 Oread Ave.
What kinds of housing will Baby Boomers want when they retire? Do Boomers have specific housing needs or preferences? Are those needs currently being met, or will they require a new way of thinking about and designing living spaces? Nearly 10,000 Boomers turn 65 each day, so these questions demand answers from architects, developers and policymakers in various fields. To further examine this topic, KU will host the I-70 Corridor Conference on Interdisciplinary Aging Research on Nov. 7-8 at the Oread Hotel in Lawrence. The two-day conference will comprise nearly 60 researchers from nine universities to consider developing a network on interdisciplinary aging research among universities along the I-70 corridor. Through workshop discussions, participants will focus on two areas of research " Eldercare Technology and Community-Based Nursing and Learning with Elders Where They Live " that might provide a basis for a National Institutes of Health grant proposal.
