Abstract

Older minorities in the United States will have a fast increase in the next decades. They include older people of heterogeneous ethnic groups such as blacks, latins, Asian and Indian Americans. The Ethnogeriatrics Committee of the American Geriatrics Society works on aspects related to health and well-being of older minorities. The Position Statement on Ethnogeriatrics of the AGS is given. The AGS promoves cultural sensibility, interdisciplinary education and research on ethnic factors that affect aging, health and presentation of diseases in older persons. Older minorities have a high prevalence of diseases at early ages that affect their function and quality of life. They also have culture or language barriers, poverty and low education that decrease their access to health care. The AGS supports knowledge and improvement of these factors that affect health of older minority Americans.
