To the Future of Ethnogeriatric Research and Publication.

J Am Geriatr Soc 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Geriatric and Extended Care Service, VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.

The reinstatement of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society Section on Ethnogeriatrics coincides with more rapid growth in older populations that are classified as ethnic and racial minorities in the United States than those classified as non-Hispanic white. By 2060, 40% of older Americans are predicted to belong to a minority. Important needs for ethnogeriatric research and publication include: making sure research populations are meaningful and precise rather than using categories that include many unrelated groups; and increasing research among smaller ethnic populations of older adults.

Paid Family Leave: An Emerging Benefit for Employed Family Caregivers of Older Adults.

J Am Geriatr Soc 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

AARP Public Policy Institute, Washington, DC.

As our population ages, the ability to take time off to care for an ill family member or close friend without losing income or a job is a growing social, health, and economic issue for American families. Therefore, the need for paid family leave policies for workers with caregiving responsibilities is an important topic for employers and policymakers, in the clinical care of older adults, and at kitchen tables across the United States. Despite this growing need, paid family leave is not available to most workers, and there is no national paid family leave policy. Read More
