With commitment -- with a movement -- there is hope and opportunity. Millions of aging individuals are seeking new ways to remain healthy, active, engaged and contributing members of society. Thoughtful leaders are beginning to pay attention and respond to the demographic wave. Solutions are being discussed and developed.
