Annual statewide conference helps aging network adapt and evolve
Learn from national and state experts about today's hottest issues
Sept. 13, 2012
One of the Department of Aging's most vital partners is the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging, or O4A. O4A represents the state's 12 area agencies that coordinate services for seniors and others on a local level. Each year, O4A sponsors a statewide conference to provide anyone working within the aging network an opportunity to learn about the latest issues, policy initiatives and more from state and national experts.
We are proud to support O4A's mission and present this guest blog.
The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (o4a) is proud to present the 23rd Annual Conference on Aging on October 29 and 30, 2012, at Hilton Columbus at Easton, Ohio. It can feel impossible to take root when the world seems to be in perpetual flux. Our network has witnessed seismic shifts in health care delivery, the economy, and the political climate at state and federal levels, yet our mission remains the same.
That mission addresses issues that have an impact on the aging network, serves as a collective voice for Ohio's Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs), and provides services to members and associates. This conference provides educational opportunities consistent with the mission.
Change is inevitable, but when we intelligently adapt and evolve, so is success.
Whether or not this is your first visit to our conference, you will find national and state experts, the sponsors, and fellow conference participants provide an energizing learning experience. The three pre-conference intensives, twelve workshops, and three general sessions offer pertinent information for the aging network. Some of this year's key highlights include:
- Keynote by Marilyn Tavenner, Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
- Pre-Conference Intensives on HEDIS, Caregiving Initiatives and AAA Care Transitions
- " Topics include: Managed Care, Social Worker Ethics, Financial Exploitation, i-teams, and much more.
