As a mother of two young children, Maura has been in school for the past years pursuing a degree in nursing, and ultimately, her dream of becoming a flight nurse. “My family unit is the most important thing to me and is what keeps me going everyday to achieve my goals.” She commented, “I want to thank Pacific Prime for giving me the assistance I need to make the world a better place.”

The effects of aging population on healthcare by Maura Jones

Maura’s winning submission attributes much of the current geriatric population problem to the Baby Boomers and presents how they are flooding the healthcare market. She illustrates how the demographic shifts, given the rising medical costs and the lack of resources, will overwhelm the public healthcare system by 2030. On the other hand, she also pinpoints that the geriatric population will push up the demand for medicine and technology. While many submissions we have received focus purely on the negative impacts of the aging population, this essay stands out with its valuable insight into the potential benefits brought by the silver tsunami.

“Muara’s submission is so different from the rest”, said Olivier Zeller, Singapore CEO at Pacific Prime Singapore. “She has curated a well-structured essay that can see both sides of the aging population issue, which helps it stand out amid fierce competition. This acknowledgment is well-deserved, and we wish Maura all the best in the pursuit of her dreams to become a flight nurse.”
