You don't want to say 'stresses out'. That is a term that means you have too much stress in your life. 'Stresses' means emphasizes, which is what you want to say here.

This can be made simpler.

 

Ponterotto stresses the fact that participants sixty-five years of age and older are more vulnerable to misinterpretations and miscommunications.

 

I think that says the same thing you wrote. I'm only a year shy of sixty five, and I might have misinterpreted it.
