Some of the questions
answered by the 2018 panel
Every day, 10,000 people turn 65 in the United States. Seniors are one of the largest growing demographic group in the Miami Valley, too. St. Mary Development Corporation hosts the annual Business of Aging event in conjunction with the Dayton Business Journal. A Business Journal editor moderates a panel of experts on senior trends in housing, technology, healthcare and other topics, as we explore the Business of Aging in the Miami Valley. During the summit, attendees hear directly from the people who are change leaders in the senior sector. At each event, a new demographic study is presented to attendees to help guide their work with seniors and manage their organizations.
