This will be a written assignment for my doctoral aging and diversity class regarding the impact of diversity on the aging process.
For this particular assignment, using Mehrota, Chandra and Wagner, Lisa. (2009). Aging and diversity 2nd ed. New York: Routledge.
Ch. 7 respond to the following topic:
Interview an older adult (someone at least aged 65 or older) from a different race other than your own. Ask him or her about what they find positive and what they find negative about growing older, from a physical as well as a psychological or social perspective. Inquire about their experiences with the workforce and retirement. Ask about their cultural values and beliefs regarding life, acceptance of help and death and compare them to your own. Also ask how they are treated in this country. Use the assigned readings to support your claims.
For your reference, I am a healthy, white 34-year old female from Kentucky. I am extremely active and spend a lot of time working out and eating healthy food. Also, I am a college professor in the Exercise Science department and own an online fitness and nutrition coaching business.
I have attached recommended resources to elaborate on the assignment expectations. Make sure to provide substantial evidence from scholarly resources and refrain from making generalized statements. Textbooks, blogs, magazine or internet articles, book chapters, or special reports, do not count toward scholarly resources.
