HAN in Chicago at Aging in America
posted 01.29.2013

By Debra Cherry
 
As the time for our the annual Aging in America Conference approaches, I hope ASA members are excited about this opportunity to see old friends, meet new collaborators and learn about cutting-edge programs.
 
This year the Healthcare and Aging Network (HAN) plans an exciting Special Program day, which takes place Thursday, March 14, from at 1:00 p.m. (check the conference program book or online for final room locations). Called “Take Control of Your Health! Strategies for Addressing Multiple Chronic Conditions Among Older Adults and Persons with Disabilities,” there will be three sessions devoted to this important topic:
 
How Vision Problems, Dementia and Multiple Chronic Conditions Can Lead to Injuries, Isolation and Functional Limitations; Spotlighting the Promise of CMMI innovation Grants (which highlights innovative models funded through CMS to deliver improved care without adding cost); and Juggling Health Risks and Caregiving Realities in Managing Coexisting Diabetes and Dementia.
 
Following the program, join in lively dialog at the Alzheimer’s Peer Group, jointly sponsored with the Mental Health and Aging Network (MHAN).
 
HAN is ASA’s largest constituent group. Please attend our conference events and get to know colleagues with similar interests.
 
See you at the Aging in America Conference.
 

Debra Cherry, Ph.D., is Executive Vice President at Alzheimer’s Association California Southland in Los Angeles, Calif., and Chair of the HAN Council.
