There will be 7.8M people in Texas over 65 by 2050. Are Central Texas businesses, families and individuals prepared to care for our elders? How will this demographic shift impact healthcare and business considering the challenges we already face? Dr. Carlson will discuss these challenges, examine the influence Baby Boomers have had on the economy and highlight a new way of thinking about solutions that, if adopted can improve all our lives.
