WDET 101.9, by Martina Guzman
Demographic data shows that the population of Latino Senior Citizens in the U-S will increase five-fold over the next several decades. This boom is creating unprecedented demands for providers of social, medical and nutritional programs. As a way of supporting the increased population of Latino seniors, a local non-profit organization decided to hold a dinner. In the first installment of our series on aging, WDET’s Martina Guzman reports.

NOTE: Jane Garcia of LASED continues the event in honor of Ruben Acosta who died last year.  Acosta recreated La Cena de los Pobres here in Detroit.
