Sponsored by Grantmakers in Aging

A large component of what shapes our identity is our sense of place – a place to call home, an environment to relate to and a community that embraces every stage of our lives. The concept of age-friendly communities and cities has been adapted and applied in many different ways worldwide. Increasingly the term “age-friendly” is an important pillar to the strategic plans of all levels of government. Thespeakers, Dr. Margaret Neal, Director of the School of Community Health: Institute on Aging and Hugh O’Connor, CEO, Age-Friendly Ireland, lead two of the most impressive set of age-friendly scenarios in the world. Special thanks to co-sponsors, John A. Hartford Foundation, the Community AGEnda initiative, The Pfizer Foundation, and the International Federation on Ageing (IFA). PLEASE NOTE: CEUs are not available for this session. ASA is producing this event and will host the recorded program for access by GIA members.
