The Gateway to Global Aging Data is pleased to announce our Monthly Analysis of Global Aging Data Seminar Series. Starting last month in June, each seminar will take place on the last Tuesday of every month for one hour. One or two presenters will have the opportunity to present their research ideas or preliminary findings in a 15-minute presentation and receive feedback and suggestions.
In collaboration with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) long-term care team, the seminar series will initially focus on topics that include long-term care, dementia, and end-of-life care related issues. We plan to continue the seminar series with additional topics, reflecting the interests of participating researchers in the seminar.
We hope the seminar series will be an opportunity to learn more in-depth about the many facets of aging and to engage in discussion with a multidisciplinary group of researchers. The Gateway team can offer insights to the longitudinal data that we house, especially on the methodological issues that arise from analyzing these data.
At the end of June, we held our first seminar, featuring presentations from Dr. Ludovico Carrino of King’s College London on “How do LTC policies frame inequalities in access to care, health and wellbeing of older vulnerable adults in mature Welfare States?” and Dr. HwaJung Choi of the University of Michigan on “Trends in disability among middle aged and older adults in the US and England from 2002 to 2016”.
If you are interested in attending or presenting at a future seminar, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you can join us in our next seminar!
