Today, we celebrate Senior Citizens Day in honor of the contributions they make all over the U.S., which was created to raise awareness of social issues concerning the elderly. To honor this awareness, read the Wikipedia article about elderly care, which student editor Ellyhutch expanded during the spring 2012 term in Dr. Diana Strassmann and Dr. Anne Chao’s Poverty, Gender, and Development course.
During the assignment, Ellyhutch added information about gender discrepancies in treatment of the elderly, legal issues regarding incapacity, and examples of elderly care in developing countries. Ellyhutch’s improvements have raised awareness for more than 300,000 readers about these important social issues!
