Making community events accessible to older adults

You’re invited to a talk Wednesday, Dec. 3, at noon in the Stone Building’s Edwards Lounge.

Older adults are a rapidly growing and important segment of the population because of their numbers, their accumulated wisdom and investment in the community, and their economic influence. Today’s older adults seek to remain active, independent, and engaged with the community in ways that differ dramatically from generations past. Dr. Beth Barba and Dr. Anita Tesh will provide insights to ensure that community events are accessible, engaging and safe for older adult members of the community.
