[White House Conference on Aging, 1981. Abstracts of the Technical Committee Reports, Mini White House Conference Reports, and State White House Conference Reports.]
Cowell, Daniel D.
This collection of abstracts, designed to assist White House Conference on Aging delegates involved with research on aging, presents information from 16 Technical Committee Reports which focus on implications of an age-integrated society, employment, support systems, health issues and services, the family, long-term care, older Americans as a national resource, research, and retirement income. Of the 41 abstracts from the Mini-White House Conference Reports, 10 deal specifically with health care issues: alcoholism, Alzheimer's Disease, vision, hearing impairments, foot care, oral health care, long-term care, mental health, national health security, and nursing. Eleven mini-conference abstracts focus on the aging of specific populations, e.g., American Indians, Blacks, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Euro-Americans, women, veterans, rural elderly, urban elderly, low income persons, and the institutionalized elderly. The remaining mini-conference abstracts deal with services, self-sufficiency, stereotypes, housing, and other issues relevant to aging. Abstracts are also presented from the State White House Conference Reports of all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, the Navajo Nation, the Northern Marianas, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
