National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a)
Join n4a and your peer agencies for a AAA and Title VI member-only lunchtime webinar 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.
