On December 6-9, 2011, in Los Angeles, 170 participants at the Fifth Annual International Conference on Positive Aging gathered to learn and to be inspired by experts and colleagues. 

Among the media with interest in the conference outcomes was Lance Orozco of the NPR station KCLU. He chose to report on what experts say about why so many people are unprepared for the post-retirement period of their lives despite America’s population living longer and seniors being healthier than ever.
