Event description

Description

More of us are looking forward to living longer, healthier lives than ever before—and a diverse array of medical specialists have played a critical role in that milestone. But as more and more of us age, are our conversations within health care matching what we all want (and need) “aging” to be?

The short answer: Not yet—but that can change! In this session, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) will share key learnings from its work with the FrameWorks Institute and the Leaders of Aging Organization to reframe how we all think about and act upon aging as a social construct. By looking critically at how communication strategies—even down to individual word choices—can activate positive (or negative) frames for our members and the people they serve, we hope to help all health specialties adjust to the reality of providing care that not only meets but also embraces the needs of us all as we age.

Join the OMA for this second installment of our 2019 Gather & Grow series. This event is presented in partnership with the Oregon Geriatrics Society. We will provide hosted appetizers and beverages while you network with your peers.
