The Duke Endowment commissioned Dr. James H. Johnson, Jr., PhD, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, to develop a report on aging demographics and evidence-based programs in the Carolinas. In this webinar, Dr. Johnson reported on his findings, including highlighting the major demographic drivers that shaped the size, composition, and geographic distribution of the elderly population (65 and older) in the Carolinas at the end of the first decade of the new millennium; and identifying both promising initiatives and programmatic gaps where new and innovative efforts are needed to foster and facilitate successful aging in place. Presenters: Lin Hollowell, Associate Director, Health Care, The Duke Endowment; and James H. Johnson, Jr., William Rand Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor, Kenan-Flagler Business School and Director, Urban Investment Strategies Center, Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
