Finding Your Path to Advocacy

SGS Advocacy in Aging Virtual Forum

October 4 & 5, 2022

1:00–3:30 pm ET both days

Bridging research and practice is a cornerstone of the work of SGS members, but policy and advocacy also play a large role at the local and state level. This forum is intended to help participants find their path to advocacy, whatever their work or life focus.

October 4
Learn about policy and advocacy for older adults in the South. Hear stories of how national and state advocacy groups change policies and different ways you can be involved no matter where you are on your path!

October 5
We’ll take what we learned on day one a step further by learning how different organizations across three states are addressing aging direct care workforce issues. We’ll end the day by giving attendees a platform to share their ideas and concerns on this issue.

FREE for SGS Members

$35.00 for Non-Members
