University of Southern California and Mexico's Geriatrics Institute Team Up

Mexico and the US working together towards a better future
A few days ago, a two-day workshop between the Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging at the University of Southern California School of Social Work and Mexico's and Mexico's National Institute of Geriatrics was held at Mexico City. The objective of the event was to foster dialogue and identify opportunities for partners from both sides of the border.

The International Workshop on Social Support for Older Adults, brought together scholars, researchers and other players together. The event was supported by the American Embassy in Mexico as part of the US-Mexico Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Innovation, and Research.

Some of the topics covered were the global tendencies towards aging populations, reduced number of births, changes in the structure of families, and the development of networks and infrastructure that provide or block the specific needs of the senior citizens. Some of the topics were the health needs of aging populations and how to deal with them.

It is interested to notice that scholars from China were also invited to the even to share their ideas and their problems.

If you're considering traveling to Mexico for healthcare or retiring in Mexico, you may want to  get yourself a copy of The English's Speaker's Guide to Doctors and Hospitals in Mexico in order to find a good doctor or hospital in the main towns and cities of Mexico, or The English Speaker's Guide to Medical Care in Mexico, to understand how the Mexican healthcare system works.
