Gerontology is the study of the aging processes and individuals as they grow from middle age through later life. It includes:
- the study of physical, mental, and social changes in older people as they age
- the investigation of the changes in society resulting from our aging population
- the application of this knowledge to policies and programs. As a result of the multidisciplinary focus of gerontology, professionals from diverse fields call themselves "gerontologists" (retrieved 5-7-08)
Rationale for programs: By 2030, there will be about 72 million older people in the United States. Thus, there is an identified national and regional need for professionals to work in the growing field of gerontology because of these dramatic changes in demography, due to increased life expectancy and the aging of the "baby boom" generation.
