Age-Friendly Initiatives: Making Communities Livable for All Ages

Presented by: Wendy Bartlo, CHAD (Center for Health, Aging, and Disability), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Join us for a free webinar, Age-Friendly Initiatives: Making Communities Livable for All Ages, on Thursday, October 26, 2017, from Noon to 1PM.

Baby-boomers are retiring, and community leaders need to pay attention as their populations change. Please join us for this free webinar on information and a case example of Age Friendly Community initiatives, presented by Wendy Bartlo, PhD., from The Center on Health, Aging, and Disability at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Wendy completed her doctorate in anthropology and a pre-doctoral fellowship in gerontology at Wayne State University in Detroit, where she spent two years researching the lives of older adults in Detroit neighborhoods.This webinar will explore her research and work in helping to move Champaign-Urbana into the AARP and World Health Organization's network of age friendly communities, as well as present her suggestions on what makes a community livable for residents of all ages.
