The Center on Longevity is now accepting submissions for the 2016-2017 Design Challenge "Innovating Aging in Place". This year's challenge will focus on designs that improve the quality of life for individuals aging in their homes. $17,000 in cash prizes will be awarded, and finalists will receive paid travel to Stanford, where they will present their designs to expert industry, academic, and government leaders.

New research by the Center on Longevity  shows that aging adults play critical roles in the lives of young people, especially children who are the most vulnerable in society. The key is changing social norms so these types of relationships are encouraged and made productive for both age groups.
