Event Details

Please join us for the 2012 "As America Ages" conference. Building off last year's conversation around the impact of the aging US population, our 2012 conference will empower attendees with actionable strategies that utilize collaboration across public agencies as well as public / private partnerships. With budgets tight (and getting tighter), learn how to leverage the genius in the agencies and community organizations that surround you to better address thorny and challenging issues that threaten the well-being of today's (and tomorrow's) seniors. We are excited to bring together a set of leaders across sectors and disciplines to share their experiences and speak with you about how they (and you!) can get it done.

Topics Include:

  • Setting the Stage: New Developments to Help Us Age in Place
  • Building a Collaborative Engine
  • Creative Collaborations in Rhode Island & Beyond
  • Resolving Elder Abuse in the Justice System: the Brooke Astor Case
  • Building your own collaborations for a positive aging experience
  • Continental breakfast, lunch, and networking reception

Speakers:

Parking: Visitor lot is on corner of Thayer and Brook St or Thayer and Power St.
