Older Arab Americans are a growing segment of the community. They face their own issues, including social isolation, difficulty adjusting, and many don’t have the support structure or financial means needed in order to continue to thrive and live healthy

In today’s conversation at the Café, we talked about the scope of the problem and some proposed solutions. Our guest was Dr. Kristine Ajrouch, a noted expert on the topic, who studied and published extensively about aging in Arab Americans, covering the impact of physical and mental illness, social safety net and acculturation. Dr. Ajrouch is Professor of Sociology at Eastern Michigan University. She is Adjunct Research Professor at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. In addition, she is Director of the Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease.
