4th Annual Forum on Aging in Rural Oregon

The annual Forum on Aging in Rural Oregon is an event where people discuss their experiences, learn from one another and bring forth new ideas to move forward solutions that improve care and services for elders.

Please note that the Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) has canceled the in-person Forum scheduled for May 27-29, 2020. Our top priority is to help protect our communities and staff and to slow the spread of COVID-19. We are currently exploring alternative mechanisms to disseminate timely 2020 Forum content and will update this page as planning evolves.

The Forum connects Critical Access Hospitals, coordinated care organizations, local public health departments, private and rural health clinics with state and local aging-related stakeholders and community members. Attendees include health care providers and leaders, aging program specialists, policymakers, community members, family caregivers, elder care professionals, philanthropists and anyone interested in making it easier to age in place in rural Oregon.
