The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative is hosting a webinar, Equity in Aging, on April 8, 201 at 1:00pm. Presentations will include current work and highlighted issues from:
- Public Health Institute of Western Mass
- Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative (MHAC)
- MHAC community partners
The webinar will be the start of a conversation on Equity in Aging with further webinars and the launch of a MHAC group focused on advancing inclusive age-and dementia friendly communities, policies and practices.
The group will aim to continue the legacy of the Multicultural Coalition on Aging, which was focused on supporting diverse older adults in Greater Boston, and aligned with the MA Healthy Aging Collaborative to form the MCA@MHAC. MCA@MHAC was critical in developing the Healthy Aging for All guide, and now we look to the next phase of a new statewide effort.
