Event description

Description

One in three U.S. adults has either reached or passed the age of 50. By 2030, one in five will be 65 or older. As our population continues to age, we need to develop innovative solutions that will enable low-income older adults to age safely in their homes and communities.

Join AARP Foundation and Rock Health for the 2017 Aging in Place $50K Challenge—a celebration of aging-in-place innovation. The three finalists will pitch their solutions and share how they will help to reduce unnecessary healthcare services, costs, and hospital readmission rates for older adults.

The winner will be awarded a $50,000 cash prize and the chance to work with AARP Foundation to improve the lives of vulnerable seniors.

Light refreshments will be provided. There is street parking available around the Rock Health office, and the entrance is on 3rd Street.
