Short Description: 

In this ASA Chicagoland Roundtable we will explore how we can work together to make our communities more supportive of aging.

Full Description: 

 

As we move more towards community-based solutions to providing services and supporting people as they age in their communities, how people live, where they live, and how they get around becomes increasingly important. 
 
In this ASA Chicagoland Roundtable we will explore how we can work together to make our communities more supportive of aging. We will hear from four local voices, each bringing a different perspective from various fields that, when stitched together, have the potential to make significant changes in our communities to better support people as they age. 
 
As a result of this roundtable attendees will have a greater understanding of what is happening both nationally and locally in the livable communities movement; learn about critical issues for consideration as our own communities age; generate ideas for opportunities in their own work or community; and learn about new opportunities for collaboration and advocacy. 
 
Join us as we look toward the future of aging communities in our region.
