Julie Dalton is the Executive Director of Gramatan Village, an aging in community organization in Bronxville, NY.  Her work focuses on redefining the conversation about aging and how best to serve the fastest growing demographic: baby boomers and elders.  Ms. Dalton graduated from Syracuse University and received her professional certification from the University of North Texas. A member of the American Society on Aging Ms. Dalton serves on a number of regional advisory boards and is a sought after speaker on the National Village Movement and is a mentor for communities poised to establish a village model program. 

About our discussion she says, "We have added more than 30 years to our life expectancy over the past century.  As people live longer, healthier lives the question is how does our society best leverage the talents, wisdom and skills of older community residents?  The preferred choice for many is to 'age in community'.  The baby boomers are redefining the expectations of the later years.  The majority of Americans will remain in the community.  To deal successfully with the challenges and opportunities associated with aging, cost effective, sustainable solutions are required."
