The Purdue University Retirement Association and the Department of Political Science are hosting a forum on Long Term Care and the challenges it presents today and into the future.
Sara Imhof will discuss the fiscal policy implications related to long term care, primarily the pressures on federal, state and personal budgets from the unprecedented demoagraphic shift in the U.S. as well as the costs associated with long term care.
Dr. Imhof is joined by Dr. Frank Thompson, Distinguished Professor of Public Affairs and Administration (Rutgers); Dr. Morton Coleman, Director Emeritus of the Institute of Politics (University of Pittsburgh); and Dr. James Anderson, Professor of Medical Sociology and Health Communication (Purdue).
The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
