Speaker:
Paula Hertel from Agesong on aging
In the next 10 – 15 years there will be a doubling of the population over 65 and the biggest segment will be over 85 and 2011 will see the biggest increase in population
Agesong runs assisted living but also employs educators of public and caretakers
Promotion of healthy aging vs. unhealthy aging and how these feelings can affect the individual.
One of the methods they teach for healthy aging is meditation, taking the time to reflect upon the feelings that the individual has regarding his/her aging
Until the public begins to see aging in a more positive light it is difficult to shift the cultural perception of aging
The external messages about aging have a very dramatic effect on personal and societal feelings about aging and it’s important to filter those messages

The World Health Organization and UNICEF cohosted a meeting with Rotary International and other stakeholders in Geneva on 18 June to launch the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) Strategic Plan 2010-12.

The new plan comes at a critical time for the GPEI. Key endemic countries are witnessing historic gains against the disease. Nowhere is progress more evident than in Nigeria, which has reported just three cases in 2010 as of 6 July compared with 333 cases for the same period in 2009. India has reported 22 cases compared with 107 cases.

Across Africa, 10 of the 15 previously polio-free countries reinfected in 2009 have stopped their outbreaks.
