The African American Health Program invites you to join us for AAHP’s 2019 Aging Information Exchange Summit. The summit will take place on October 10, 2019 from 10am to 2pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center. The purpose is to inform, educate, and motivate AAHP’s aging populations to become better familiar with services and resources to support living in place and avoiding the disruption of families. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend a facilitated panel discussion, obtain vital information from primarily aging vendors and be able to receive basic health screenings for BMI, Blood Pressure, and Blood Glucose.

 

Dr. Marie Bernard, Deputy Director of the National Institutes on Aging (NIA) will serve as the keynote speaker providing an overview of research supported by the NIA with a focus on findings relevant to older African Americans. Attendees will also hear from Marc Elrich, County Executive and leaders in the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services.

 

Doors open at 9:30am. Light refreshments will be served!
