Webinar Series - Aging in Asia: Ethical and Policy Issues in Healthy Aging and End of Life Care Across the Asia-Pacific Region
September 9 – 23, 2020, every Wednesday

With aging populations and dwindling birth rates in many developed countries. healthy aging and end of life care are becoming an increasing challenge.  A multidisciplinary approach by scholars from Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China, Mongolia, and the U.S. addresses these issues and discuss leading aging policy developments across the Pacific.  Speakers explore ethical issues, initiatives to address the emerging global aging crisis, and ultimately seek to build a regional network among scholars and practitioners across Asia and the United States.

Each of the three webinar sessions, to be held online on September 9, 16, and 23, will deal with a different region of Asia. The webinar program, containing the agenda, abstracts, and brief biographical statements of the speakers, can be downloaded from this website.

"Aging in Asia" is organized jointly by Winston Tseng of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health Health Research for Action, and Department of Ethnic Studies Asian American & Asian Diaspora Studies Program; Duan-Rung Chen, National Taiwan University College of Public Health Institute of Health Behaviors and Community Sciences; and the UC Berkeley Institute of East Asian Studies.
