If you have experience, or are curious about the various ways to strengthen the community around older adult care, please consider being a part of our summit. We have a number of ways to get involved, listed below.
This summit aims to bring together various care providers, researchers, students, family, close ones, and volunteers as well as organizational and business representatives who are involved in older adult care, health, and well-being. If you have lived experience in caring with older adults, or being cared for as an older adult, we encourage YOU to attend.
We will use the Scientific Café format, which aims to reach all audiences, connecting professionals and scholars with members of the public to encourage conversation, debate, interaction, and dialogue.
