Future Proof: Age-Inclusive Education

In Season Five of Future Proof, Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President of AARP Foundation, is guest host, and explores innovative approaches to fighting poverty with leaders in the community. She also discusses how these approaches can be applied across generations to build opportunity.

With an ever-changing job market requiring continuous learning and a maturing labor market, and with more adults working past traditional retirement age, there’s an opportunity and imperative for higher education institutions to develop age-friendly learning environments and opportunities that are affordable and accessible. In episode 3, Lisa talks with Ruth Finkelstein, Rose Dobrof Executive Director of the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging at Hunter College, about the role that adult education plays in addressing poverty.
