Thanks to all who attended the

2021 Healthy Aging Summit - Virtual Event

 

Healthy Aging in the Age of COVID 

Redefining. Reimagining. Responding.

 

June 3-4, 2021  

The Healthy Aging Summit was a fun, inspiring virtual conference for professionals and people with an interest in improving the health of their communities. This year we explored how our priorities have changed - or not changed - in light of the pandemic and how we are responding to ensure that people in our communities age well.  

 

With 14 workshops, 5 general sessions, and the Healthy Aging Star Awards, the 2021 Summit provided information about the health-related issues that impact people in your community. We learned from experts on new interventions and initiatives that support older adult health and connected with colleagues to learn what they’re doing to improve community health.

 

Registered Summit participants who would like to view recordings of the Summit general and breakout sessions can get access by contacting Kris Krasnowski
