Local to Global Connections: Dr. Rosenberg's Research in France

France, like the United States and most other nations, is facing the rapid aging of its population. In Summer 2012 Dr. Rosenberg, who'd taught in France in 2004-05, began working with a group of French researchers who'd been contracted by the French government to produce a report on ways to make French cities and towns more "age-friendly." The report included examples of "best practices" from France, United States, Germany, Denmark, and other nations. It was submitted to the government in December 2012, and in Spring 2013 Dr. Rosenberg was asked by the project coordinator, Dr. Pierre-Marie Chapon, to provide an English-language version that could be made available to the global scientific community.
