Education for an Aging Planet
Ingman, Stan; Amin, Iftekhar; Clarke, Egerton; Brune, Kendall
Educational Gerontology, v36 n5 p394-406 2010
As low income societies experience rapid aging of their populations, they face major challenges in developing educational policies to prepare their workforce for the future. We review modest efforts undertaken to assist colleagues in three societies: Mexico, China, and Jamaica. Graduate education in gerontology has an important opportunity to expand research, training, and service-learning programs in global aging.
