Each year, the Missouri Association of Area Agencies on Aging brings together some of the best people in America to explore strategies to help Missouri’s senior population. This year, our presenters and participants will convene at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, MO from August 26th to August 28th during the ShowMe Summit on Aging and Health 2014.
It is the only forum on aging in the state reaching key decision-makers in both the non-profit and business sectors, including home health care, chronic disease management, information and assistance services, consumer counseling, financial planning, as well as seniors themselves.
Topics will include elder abuse and exploitation, mobility, health literacy, disease management, cultural diversity, health care reform, electronic health records, and mental health initiatives for seniors (dealing with depression, etc.).
We encourage your participation in this hallmark event. Sponsors and Exhibitors are encouraged to make reservations early to insure a spot at this premiere senior event.
