The John Marshall Law School Elder Law Program presents “Global Perspectives on Aging Populations,” an examination of Chinese and American systems dealing with elder issues. This 3 to 5 p.m. program on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012, will be presented at the law school, 315 S. Plymouth Ct., Chicago.
“Nations around the world are analyzing their systems for financing the health care costs and living expenses of their aging populations,” said Professor Barry Kozak, director of the law school’s Elder Law Program. “We will begin to explore how to keep citizens healthy and out of personal financial straits without over-extending government support.”
Program moderator will be Professor Susan Cancelosi of Wayne State University Law School. Panelists joining Professor Kozak are Professor Fang Lehua of East China University of Political Science and Law in Shanghai, China, and Charles Sabatino of the American Bar Association’s Commission on the Law and Aging.
