“Aging in the US” Conference:

Just putting in a plug for an upcoming one-day conference here at Temple Law School on October 22, organized by my colleague Nancy Knauer, on “Aging in the US: The Next Civil Rights Movement?” The goal of the Symposium, in the words of its organizers, “is to move the national conversation surrounding aging beyond the traditional elder law topics of estate planning, benefit eligibility, and health care financing and ask whether elder rights should be the next civil rights movement.” There will be a host of speakers and presenters, including Nina Kohn from Syracuse Law School and M.T. Connolly of Lifelong Justice, and it should be an interesting day.

Information regarding the conference and registration is available at www.law.temple.edu/aging.
