March 12, 2021: Aging in a Changing Environment

Communities nationwide are tasked with accommodating our growing older adult population while simultaneously adapting to our changing climate. Modifying environmental factors that pose challenges and opportunities for older adult health and well-being may mitigate older adults’ vulnerability to extreme weather events. Identifying environmental factors that cultivate individual and social resiliency can guide public and institutional policies in the effort to adapt, cope and recover from extreme climate events.
