RAND is pleased to announce the 24th annual RAND Summer Institute (RSI) on the Demography, Economics, Psychology, and Epidemiology of Aging. RSI addresses critical issues facing our aging population, and offers attendees the opportunity to connect with expert researchers in a variety of disciplines to discuss the interrelationship of health, economic, status, and public policy in the aging field.
