More to Come…
Washington, DC (cool, metro-accessible venue TBD)
2015 was a momentous year when it comes to aging: it marked the 50th anniversary of
Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act, as well as the 80th anniversary of Social
Security, not to mention the White House Conference on Aging which took place over the
summer. And, at a local level, along with fourteen other worldwide jurisdictions,
Age-Friendly DC was selected to participate in a pilot project assessing the World Health
Organization’s Draft Age-Friendly City Core Indicator Guide. All this got us thinking. What is
aging really, and how are people preparing for this phase of life: for yourself, for your family?
What progress have we made on the Caregiving front? How is technology helping?
Join us as we celebrate the holiday season and the gift of growing another year older.
Hear from women (and an audacious man), all of whom are studying and living these issues:
- Nora Super, White House Office on Aging
- Gail Krohn, Age-Friendly DC, DC Office of the Aging
- David J. Gross, PhD, Former AARP Senior Policy Advisor, Caregiver

4–5 PM Igniting DIGNITY through DIGITAL Health—
Connecting All People to Community
We hear a lot about the power of technology, patient empowerment and connected
communities. How can we possibly be successful in improving the health and well-being of
people if there are those among us who—for many reasons—are unable, unsure, or too
afraid to ask for help? Can technology, thoughtfully combined with humanity—provide a safe
pathway to access help—free from stigma and judgment. Our session shines a light on the
break-through work happening in and among communities the world over. Technology is
most powerful and patients and their care teams are most empowered, when everyone is
treated with respect. Want to know the secret to real patient engagement: Dignity. Want to
learn how Disruptive Women® are tapping technology’s power to spark dignity and
strengthen communities? Join us as we learn how people are making a difference in the lives
of young people with chronic conditions; transgender persons across the age spectrum;
frontline health workers; veterans; and others.
