GIA Webinar: Age-Friendly Rural Transportation

posted Tue, Dec 5, 2017   by Grantmakers In Aging

Join GIA for this webinar on rural transportation on Thursday, Jan 18, 2018 at 2:00pm EST. Access to transportation is a rural imperative as it is a huge determining factor in aging well but transportation options in rural areas tend to be more limited. Transportation is critical for community engagement, independence, and self-determination; is key to combat isolation; supports economic security and volunteerism; provides access to healthcare and preventive services, nutrition and other social opportunities; and provides much needed support to caregivers. Moderator: John Feather, CEO Grantmakers In Aging. Panelists: Laura Mason, Program Officer, May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust; Andrew Levack, MPH, Senior Program Officer, St. David’s Foundation; and Amy St. Peter, Assistant Director, Maricopa Association of Governments.
