The Smart Silver Economy: Tech-Enabled Aging for Good
Start Date: 3/13/2019Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 3/13/2019End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description:

Speaker: Dr. Josephine McMurray, Business Technology Management Program, Lazaridis School of Business and Economics


In 2016, the number of older adults in Canada surpassed the number of children, due to lower fertility rates, increasing life expectancy and the baby boomers aging. The Silver Economy is a term that has been used to refer to economic activity associated with meeting the needs of seniors. In this lecture I will explore how technology might be used to help organizations and communities manage the impact of a growing number of older adults, but better still how they can thrive by encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in the health and age-related technology sector.

This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.
