WEBINAR – Work Supports for Adult Health:
The Role of Paid Family and Medical Leave
May 31, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (PT) / 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm (ET)
Many Americans struggle to balance work and caregiving responsibilities. As the United States population ages — with the U.S. Census Bureau projecting that by 2035 those 65 and older will outnumber the youth for the first time in history – the number of men and women who are providing care for someone age 65 and older will continue to increase. In addition, one in seven people live with an adult with a disability. This panel will explore the impact that paid leave has on improving adult health outcomes.
This webinar is the third in a series of three webinars produced in partnership with Policies for Action—a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, administered by the Urban Institute—on the impacts of work supports on health outcomes.
