From Hindsight to Foresight: the Evolution

The evolution of services and programs for the aging and disability community is here!  Mark your calendar for the 2022 Northeast Ohio Aging and Disability Summit, coming September 30.  This year’s Summit -- open to aging network professionals, caregivers and older adults across northeast Ohio – will be held in-person at Tri-C’s Corporate College East campus.  The Summit is presented by the Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS) in partnership with The MetroHealth System and the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging.

The Northeast Ohio Aging and Disability Summit was designed to be a platform for sharing stimulating dialogue, innovations and best practices on issues impacting older adults and adults with disabilities in our community. Last year’s inaugural Summit was held virtually and attracted nearly 400 attendees to hear national and local experts speaking on topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion, assistive technology, aging and public policy, gerontological research, workforce opportunities and much more. 

This year’s theme – From Hindsight to Foresight: The Evolution – will continue the dialogue on progress as we emerge post-pandemic with more savvy, inclusiveness and resiliency.  Topics for this year’s Summit include:

  • New ideas for post-pandemic aging
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion in aging
  • The power of developing great habits
  • The evolution of aging
  • Resiliency and aging

Attendees can choose to take part in the Summit in-person or virtually.  In-person attendees can interact with our stellar speakers and nearly 40 exhibitors.  Virtual attendees can join us from anywhere in the world and enjoy the opportunity to learn and chat with our presenters.   Up to 6.5 CEUs/CPDUs are pending approval, so Summit-goers can leave the event with fresh ideas a renewed focus, and the accredited professional development that is critical to the work they do.

The cost to attend the Northeast Ohio Aging and Disability Summit is $65 / professional; $25 student/retiree.  Exhibitor opportunities are still available, and registration will open soon.  For more information, visit dsas.cuyahogacounty.us or contact 216-698-2562 or agingsummit@jfs.ohio.gov.
