The Institute of Medicine is hosting a daylong workshop today that focuses on current and emerging technologies that can give seniors with long-term care needs more independence. Among the highlights is the unveiling of an updated LeadingAge video.

The video will showcase ways that currently-available technology tools can improve the quality of life that seniors enjoy. One of the keynote speakers will be Joseph Coughlin, director of AgeLab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who also was a top speaker at the LeadingAge annual convention in October.
