Healthy Aging in the Commonwealth: Charting a Path Forward
- Forum held on January 24, 2014
Join us on Friday, January 24, 2014 at the Boston Marriott Newton for the fourth forum on healthy aging, “Healthy Aging in the Commonwealth: Charting a Path Forward."During this forum, we will unveil the forthcoming report on healthy aging – the first of its kind in the state to provide data on health and social indicators for older adults in communities across Massachusetts.
We will also showcase a new website for the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative designed to connect professionals, advocates, senior activists, and communities in the field of healthy aging.
The forum will feature keynote speaker Joseph Coughlin, Ph.D., noted author, speaker and director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab. The Rev. Liz Walker of Roxbury Presbyterian Church will lead a discussion with Massachusetts Public Health Commissioner Cheryl Bartlett and Massachusetts Elder Affairs Secretary Ann Hartstein on healthy aging indicators in the state.
And, due to popular demand, the poster session will return this year to highlight a number of healthy aging activities in Massachusetts.
