Program

Senator Jehlen and Rep Balser will speak on current legislation in the House and Senate. Secretary Chen will address the goals and activities of EOEA. The goal is for attendees to gain knowledge and confidence when communicating with their state legislators about issues concerning elder care including current bills pending, sharing elder constituent concerns, how to be a resource to our legislators and an advocate for elders. Additionally, it would be anticipated that Aging Life Care professionals and corporate partners could be seen as a resource to provide education and in-person narratives to support and advocate for the agenda for older adults in MA.

THERE IS NO PRE-REGISTRATION.
