Connect with us at the n4a Annual Conference and Tradeshow

We are pleased to present at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging's annual conference, which takes place July 18-22 in Minneapolis. We are participating in a workshop to introduce the National Elder Economic Security Initiative, including a special focus on findings in Minnesota. Our presentation is on Tuesday, July 21 at 3:15. The presentation description is as follows:

This workshop will introduce the National Elder Economic Security Initiative Program (the Initiative). The Initiative offers a concrete framework and tools to promote the economic well-being of elders through a combination of coalition building, research, education, advocacy and media outreach. Workshop participants will learn how the Initiative and its guiding tool, the Elder Economic Security Standard Index, are being applied at the national, state and community levels to inform AAA policies and programming.
