Aging Families and Health Symposium: Social Influences on Health Lifestyle Choices in Later Life

  • September 20, 2013
  • 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Burton Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, Room 121

The risk of chronic disease increases with age, and many older adults today must daily manage at least one chronic condition. Support from family is recognized as a critical, yet understudied, component in the maintenance of a complex regimen of health behavior modifications that accompany chronic illness. This symposium, co-sponsored by Center for Aging and the Life Course and the Center for Families will address emergent research on interpersonal mechanisms that link marriage and other social ties to health outcomes of older adults. An integrative discussion will follow the presentations; the symposium will close with a poster session and reception.
