Couch organizes Conference at AARP
Professor Couch along with his collaborators, Julie Zissimopoulos (USC) and Mary Daly (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco), organized a one-day conference on Social Insurance and Lifecycle Events Among Older Americans held at the national headquarters of AARP in Washington, D.C. on December 5th. Researchers from major universities, federal agencies, consulting firms, and think tanks made presentations. About 80 people attended the event including representatives of two Congressional committees, multiple federal agencies, several philanthropic organizations, the NIA, and numerous universities and think tanks. The papers presented will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Research on Aging. The event was supported by a grant from AARP to the University of Connecticut.
