Lunch & Learn: Planning for Age-Friendly Communities

  • Date: 07/16/2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM  

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) is offering a series of Lunch and Learns starting this summer! Lunch and Learns bring together people from diverse backgrounds and organizations in an informal atmosphere to collaborate and learn how you can drive personal, team and business development to the next level. These events are offered every third Thursday of the month from noon to 1:00 p.m.

NOACA is keeping a close eye on the developing situation surrounding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) by limiting social interactions and in-person meetings. Our number one goal is the safety and well-being of our residents, visitors and communities throughout Northeast Ohio. As such, NOACA will not entertain any in-person participation at the NOACA headquarters until further notice. Therefore, the Lunch and Learn sessions will be conducted as virtual meetings for now.

Join our network and view our upcoming lists of guest and topics. When you sign up, NOACA will send you a notice when the registration is open. A link to the scheduled online meeting will be provided after you register.

Planning for Age-Friendly Communities
Date: Thursday, July 16
Time: Noon – 1 p.m.
Place: Virtual Online – Registration Required

As Dorothy said in the “Wizard of Oz,” “There’s no place like home.” That is true, no matter how old you are. So, how can communities help ensure that their residents can “age in place” and continue to be active members of their communities as they grow older? The panelists in this session will discuss common issues for older people and present suggestions to help them continue to live independently. 

Panelists:

  • Janice M. Dzigiel, Executive Director, Senior Transportation Connection
  • Mary McNamara, Director of Aging, City of Cleveland
  • Fatima Perkins, MNO, MSLIS, Director, Community Outreach & Advocacy, Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging
