2022 Show Me Summit on Aging & Health

Sept. 12-14, 2022: After a two-year pause, ma4 brought the annual Show Me Summit on Aging and Health to Kansas City, joining with the annual Age Positive: Ideas for an Age-Friendly Future Conference. The Summit was organized around the theme “We Are Better Together!”

More than 300 attendees heard from experts in the field of aging at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza. The conference was targeted to those working with older adults in area agencies on aging, senior centers, community centers, libraries, park districts and other venues that offer programming or services for older adults.

The 2022 Summit was a welcome return and was especially celebratory in partnership with Age Positive. 

Kathy Greenlee, J.D., 2022 Keynote Speaker

Kathy Greenlee encouraged participants to share their voices in advocacy for Missouri’s adults who are aging and adults living with disabilities. The best advocates are trusted, smart, steady, helpful, resourceful, and compassionate. They believe in mission and in people. A great advocate understands their voice matters.

Kathy Greenlee, J.D., served for seven years as U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging and Administrator of the Administration for Community Living, at the Department of Health & Human Services in Washington, D.C. Prior to working in Washington, she worked for 18 years in Kansas state government, including her time as Kansas Secretary of Aging. During her 25 years in public service, Kathy developed expertise in the areas of aging, long-term care, disability, elder abuse, health care, LGBTQ health, and community-based services. Greenlee currently works as a consultant on projects related to Medicaid, aging services, nursing home care and elder abuse. She is the board chair for the National Council on Aging. Kathy is a University of Kansas graduate, having received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a J.D. from the School of Law.
