The Business of Aging annual event
2019 panel focus: Social determinants of health
Positive social determinants of health (SDOH) are the social, economic and environmental conditions that help older adults maintain their health and well-being. In the Dayton area, there is a significant difference in life expectancy based on the zip code in which you live, with some zip codes predicting a life expectancy 20 years greater than others. This difference is largely due to SDOH, including food access, safe housing, affordable transportation and ability to navigate healthcare services. The panel will discuss the impact of SDOH in our communities as well as the opportunities to improve SDOH in the future.
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 study is presented to attendees to help guide their work with seniors and manage their organizations.
