We're living longer. It's a good thing! Though many people associate aging with a deteriorating quality of life, it doesn't have to be that way. 

In this online TIER Talks event, two Binghamton University alumni -- one a gerontological researcher, the other an estate planning attorney -- will discuss how getting older can be happier, healthier and wiser when approached in a purposeful way. 

This interactive program will discuss the latest societal trends in America, the importance of maintaining social networks in our later years, and planning for old age in a legal and financial context.
