Forum on Aging in Rural Oregon
The Oregon Office of Rural Health believes that rural Oregon communities have the potential to be ideal places to age. This event provides 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.
The 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 2017 Forum on Aging in Rural Oregon occurred in April in Hood River. The dates and location for the 2018 Forum have not yet been announced but it will be somewhere in Eastern Oregon in May. Check back for updates; we hope you will join us.
