Over the next two decades, America’s cities will experience one of the largest-ever lifestyle shifts in the history of the country, as up to 78 million U.S. baby boomers reach the 65-year milestone and many will choose to enjoy the rest of their lives in urban environments.
In an aging America, how will policymakers confront the urban challenges of health and well-being, to insure the nation is dotted with healthy, vibrant cities that continue to attract residents of all ages?
This was one of the topics addressed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) annual meeting held in Baltimore, Maryland, in June 2011. The Healthy Vibrant Cities panel, which was proudly hosted by Philips, brought together mayors from leading cities for a high-quality debate.
We were joined by distinguished speakers including Bill Novelli, a professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, and a panel member of the Philips Center for Health and Well-being’s Active Aging think-tank.
