Forum on Aging in Rural Oregon

2017 Forum Banner

The Oregon Office of Rural Health believes that rural Oregon communities have the potential to be ideal places to age. This event will provide a forum where people can gather to talk about their experiences, give birth to new ideas, and receive inspiration and other resources to create their own successes.

This forum is intended for community members, family caregivers, elder care professionals, primary care providers, policy makers, philanthropists and anyone interested in making it easier for seniors to age in place in rural Oregon.

The agenda at a glance can be found here.


We want to make this forum as accessible to community members as possible, so there are three different registration categories.  Please select the category that fits you best:

For people employed in the health care, social services or other related sector.  If you are interested in the Forum for professional reasons, this is the category for you.

For rural community members who are not employed in a related field, and want to attend the Forum for personal reasons.

For people currently enrolled in a health care, social services or other related educational/training program.

We are also offering a limited number of scholarships for those who do not have the financial resources to attend otherwise.  You may apply for a scholarship here or request a hard copy application .

Please join us by registering here.
