Join n4a and your peer agencies for a four-part n4a member-only lunchtime webinar series that will provide an overview of innovative programs your peers are running at their agencies. As a participant, you will hear from your peers on how they developed, implemented and sustained these programs within their agencies. Tips on how you can replicate these programs within your agencies will be shared as well, with time for Q & A at the end. All spotlighted programs won n4a Aging Innovations Awards this year; read more about them here: www.n4a.org/aia.

The January 14 webinar will highlight:

  • An innovative partnership with a local farmer where a mobile food truck visits older adults and senior centers to bring the fresh food right to clients; developed by the Central Plains Area Agency on Aging in Wichita, KS.
  • A network of all seven Minnesota Area Agencies on Aging, community organizations, health care organizations and class leaders (volunteers and staff) that expands the reach and effectiveness of evidence-based health promotion classes; developed by the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging in Arden Hills, MN.
  • A collaboration between a medical school, primary care practices and a AAA aimed at improved care for seniors identified as high-risk/high-need during Medicare Annual Wellness Visits; developed by the Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia in Norfolk, VA.
  • A program developed to help people who either have or are at high risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias continue living safely at home for as long as possible and increase access to culturally sensitive, evidence-based support services for unserved and underserved populations and their caregivers; developed by Area Agency on Aging of Tarrant County in Fort Worth, TX.
