This continues as the year to be a grantmaker in New England, as another national conference will be held there in October. Grantmakers in Aging will host their “Gaining Momentum for an Aging Society” conference from October 18-20 at the Westin Copley Plaza.
Here is the description of the conference:
Every year, the GIA Annual Conference convenes the top minds in aging. It is a place that inspires real and lasting change. We’ll come together for three days to discuss the latest issues, delve into possible solutions, and develop connections to help create widespread change for the future. We’ll cover the issues on everyone’s minds, including funding for age-friendly communities, the future of the home care workforce, and rural aging. Arguably our most diverse agenda ever, sessions range from artful aging and the power of storytelling, to equity in the Latino community, to why compassionate care is important. And don’t forget our offsite excursions! We’ll explore the Green House Model in Chelsea and the Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly to get a glimpse at how these innovative programs benefit older adults every day.
