2014 Forum on Aging continues to grow
Council on Aging would like to thank the event record 675 people who attended the 2014 Forum on Aging and Annual Meeting presented by Helping Hands Healthcare, March 4 & 5 at the Sharonville Convention Center.
The opportunity to earn up to 10 continuing education credit hours is a big draw for area social workers, nurses, nursing home administrators, and other professionals. And thanks to the event`s sponsors, the two-day conference continues to be an excellent value for participants.
Workshops featured topics relevant to Aging Network professionals, including:
COA Annual Meeting
Day-two of Forum on Aging included COA’s 43rd Annual Meeting and Awards celebration. Council on Aging CEO Suzanne Burke presented highlights from COA’s 2013 annual report and COA Board Chairman William Thornton, Jr. welcomed new board members Tim Crowley and Dan Gahl.
