Creating Age-Friendly Communities in Northern New Jersey

October 7, 2015
8:30 amto4:30 pm

New Jersey Future is a sponsor of this event, and Tim Evans and Teri Jover are among the speakers.

Attendees will hear directly from more than 20 speakers, including our inspiring keynote speakers, John Feather, CEO of Grantmakers in Aging, and Kathryn Lawler, Aging and Health Resources Manager of the Atlanta Regional Commission.

The conference will showcase notable examples of successful age-friendly community initiatives and inspire and inform local communities about models and best practices in use around the country. Informal panel discussions will offer planning and evaluation tools, including coalition-building techniques, asset mapping and needs assessment studies, and effective communication tips, which have propelled cities and towns along the path of being recognized as age-friendly.
