Panel of Pundits 2020: The Decision Year Sponsored by Abbott, Matz, Blancato & Associates, Preferred Population Health Management & PhRMA Tuesday, March 24 | 8:30–9:30 AM | Centennial Ballroom II-IV No CE credits offered for this session. The American Society on Aging again presents The Panel of Pundits. Here politics and policy connect in a unique format where predicting trumps pontificating. Part 1 of the presentation will focus the panel’s comments on key issues impacting older adults, from Medicare and Social Security to the Older Americans Act and Elder Justice. Part 2 will focus the panel’s comments on the upcoming presidential and congressional elections. Presenters: Paula Basta , MDiv, Director, Illinois Department on Aging; Rich Browdie , Former President and CEO, Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging; Yanira Cruz , DrPH, President and CEO, National Hispanic Council on Aging; Jay Newton-Small , MS, Co-founder and CEO, MemoryWell, Washington correspondent for TIME Magazine, and Journalist for Bloomberg News; Joel White , Founder and President, Horizon Government Affairs, LLC. Moderator: Bob Blancato , MPA, President, Matz Blancato & Associates. Feet Forward: Improving Longevity by Taking One Step at a Time Sponsored by Best Buy Health, CDW Healthcare, Great Call and SafelyYou. Tuesday, March 24 | 5:00–6:15 PM | Centennial Ballroom II-IV CE Credits: 1 According to the CDC, “Falls are common and costly, especially among Americans age 65 and older. But falls are preventable and do not have to be an inevitable part of aging. Every second of every day, an older adult (age 65+) suffers a fall in the U.S.—making falls the leading cause of injury and injury death in this age group. One out of four older adults will fall each year in the United States, making falls a public health concern, particularly among the aging population.” This session will look at where we stand on falls prevention and the state of falls in general with older adults. We will raise the question of how fall prevention begins with smart sensors and automation that has the potential to alleviate the fear of falls, offering hope to older adults. A panel of experts will uncover the sobering truth behind falls—perils, prevention and a prescription for taking a step forward and gaining a new perspective on aging. Presenters: Ginna Baik , Senior Care Practice Leader, CDW Healthcare; Joseph Gwin , PhD, Head, Boston Health Technology Center, Best Buy; David Inns , President, Great Call; George Netscher , CEO, SafelyYou.

Ken Dychtwald

Tim Rea

Ironically, history’s greatest accomplishment—increasing longevity—could become civilization’s undoing. Without humane and high-minded course corrections, the coming age wave could cause a misalignment of every aspect of society from pensions to playgrounds; global pandemics of degenerative diseases including hundreds of millions of humans with dementia; a new era of mass elder poverty; and a gerontocracy that could spark political age wars. In this special session, Ken Dychtwald outlines four “grand challenges” and strategies that are needed to avert them, and by so doing match health span to lifespan, safeguard financial security for all generations, activate a non-ageist longevity marketplace, and provide an interdependent 21st century purpose for modern elders. Presenter: Ken Dychtwald , PhD, Psychologist/Gerontologist, Author, Founder and CEO of Age Wave; with an introduction by TimRea , Principal, Client Strategies Group, Marketing, Edward Jones

All consumer products, services and marketing must recalibrate to court this influential customer base. Drawing on insights from her landmark book, Influence: How Women’s Soaring Economic Power Will Change Our World for the Better , and decades of proprietary Age Wave research, Maddy answers questions such as: What drives women’s purchasing decisions? Are 50+ women brand loyal…or not? What is their approach to money? How do 50+ women feel about ageist stereotypes? Is technology a barrier or a benefit?

ASA Hall of Fame Award

Bob Blancato, MPA The ASA Hall of Fame Award is presented to an individual who has, through a lifetime of advocacy and leadership, enhanced the lives of elders through demonstrated leadership at the national level.

Bob Blancato has spent his career advocating on behalf of older adults, and is responsible, in his past role as Chairman of ASA’s Board of Directors, for pushing ASA to increase its advocacy role. He has demonstrated clear national, regional and local leadership in advocacy, particularly in elder justice (he formed the Elder Justice Coalition), nutrition and food insecurity. Blancato serves as the National Coordinator of the bipartisan now 3,000-member strong coalition, as well as Executive Director of the National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Program and National Coordinator of the Defeat Malnutrition Today coalition. He serves on the National Board of AARP, the Tufts University National Nutrition Council and the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services, all while heading Matz, Blancato and Associates. Blancato spent more than 20 years in the Congressional and Executive branches, including on the senior staff of the U.S. House Committee on Aging and as Executive Director of the 1995 White House Conference on Aging. He’s a visible and relentless advocate for improving national policy for older adults, leading efforts to increase Older Americas Act nutrition program funding by more than $150 million, ensuring passage in 2010 of the Elder Justice Act and advocating for the coordination of medical care and long-term services and supports in the ACA. A major presence at the Aging in America Conference since he joined ASA in 1986, he is especially known for his raucous moderating of the Panel of Pundits session. As board chair at ASA he championed a new strategic plan with clear focus on policy and advocacy, and has mentored countless emerging ASA leaders and mid-career colleagues.

ASA Award

Louis Colbert, MSW The ASA Award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to aging-related research, administration or advocacy.

Louis Colbert has spent four decades as a leader and mentor in the aging network. He has served in his current position as Vice President of Operations for the Philadelphia Corporation on Aging (PCA) since 2013, and previously as Director of the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging. At PCA, which is the fourth largest Area Agency on Aging in the nation, he administers more than 70 percent of the agency’s workforce and budget and is lauded for his record in change management, process improvement, consumer and provider relations and fiscal and program compliance. At Delaware County he oversaw multi- million dollar budgets allocated from federal and state offices. At ASA we treasure him for his infectious warmth and humor and for the influence he has brought from his long-term role as a co-caregiver (with his siblings) for his mother. Colbert has worked diligently to bring attention to the efforts of male caregivers and also has facilitated an Alzheimer’s caregiver support group at his church for more than 15 years. He has served in several volunteer positions, including serving a term as Chair of the ASA Board of Directors.

Shubam Sharma is a doctoral candidate in Developmental Psychology at the University of Florida. Her dissertation, “Life Challenges and Resilience: Personality Continuity Relates to Current Positive Self-Functioning in Older Adulthood” highlights how resilience can be fostered in older adulthood and investigates factors that promote resilience. One internal resource for older adult resilience featured in the paper is perceived personality continuity, or how narrating life with a sense of purpose can be adaptive for older adults contending with life challenges.

ASA Awards

Award for Excellence in Multicultural Aging Age Friendly Seattle Coffee Hour The Award for Excellence in Multicultural Aging recognizes organizations that have demonstrated high-quality, innovative programs enhancing the lives of a multicultural aging population. For the past 13 years, program coordinator Lenny Orlov has led Age Friendly Seattle Coffee Hours in Seattle neighborhoods to bring community elders and city officials together to explore topics such as healthy aging, legal and planning issues. Participants learn about city programming and services and officials hear from older constituents. Attendance has grown in the past year, when the program rebranded from Senior Coffee Hour to Age-Friendly Seattle Coffee Hour. Orlov intentionally sought out immigrant and refugee older adults via outreach to Russian- and Amharic-speaking (from Ethiopia) communities, as well as offering language interpretation in Khmer Russian, Vietnamese and Amharic. To accommodate the new crowd, Orlov live streams the presentation on Facebook, projects it into a nearby room with overflow attendees and distributes via email, YouTube and social media.
