Highlights from Summit on Aging & Health – Days 2 & 3

On Tuesday, the day started early and attendees were not disappointed. During the morning Pleanary session, n4a’s Autumn Campbell delivered an in-depth report on federal policy affecting seniors entitled “Live From DC: Federal Policy Update”.You can download a copy of her presentation at the following link: “Live From DC Policy Update”

After morning breakout sessions were complete, participants gathered for lunch to hear from Missouri’s Secretary of State, Jay Ashcroft.

Sessions during the day included presentations dealing with the federal census, suicide prevention techniques, the challenges of dementia, the impact of federal and state tax changes and scams that affect the elderly population.

The evening was “on your own” with an opportunity to explore The Landing in Branson; find a great new restaurant; or maybe just catch up on your email and phone calls from earlier in the day. Day 3 activities start with breakfast at 7:30.

Day 3 – 2019 Summit on Aging & Health

It always seems like the shortest day of the Summit, but it was packed with great information. Paul Greenwood, a former prosecutor with the San Diego Office the District Attorney, opened the day discussing strategies to protect against elder abuse and economic security. Breakout sessions on Innovation, Leadership and Advocacy featured presentations from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services; the award-winning SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging; and a compelling presentation from Tommy Goode of the Moral Injury Institute.

The final day wrapped up with an update on MA4 initiatives and future plans and a fan-favorite drawing for door prizes for participants who were able to stay until the very end.

Thank you to all of our great sponsors and speakers who offered their time, expertise and funding to make us all just a little bit smarter about the work we do everyday. See you in 2020 at the 17th Annual Summit. Details coming in February.
