Dr. Luisa Blanco Presenting on Financial Health of Older Adults and Women at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
Dr. Luisa Blanco, associate professor of public policy, will present two sessions at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in August. She will first present "Retirement Planning Among Middle Age and Older Hispanics" at the Financial Needs for Older Adults roundtable meeting where she will discuss why this issue should be studied in Los Angeles, about the studies, its findings, and policy recommendations regarding Age-Friendly Banking practices that will help improve the financial inclusion and safety of older adults of color. Blanco will also present "Preliminary Results of Spanish and English Focus Groups" for a pilot program, "Women's Health & Money @ Work," where she will discuss preliminary findings from focus groups with low- to moderate-income women on their experiences and opinions regarding health and financial decisions. This discussion is part of the Advancing Women's Health Equity and Financial Literacy Advisory Board meeting.
