Join other Community-Based Senior-Serving (CBSS) professionals and their allied systems partners at Healthy Aging Alberta's in-person Regional Gatherings!
Healthy Aging Alberta is a by community for community, provincial initiative that brings together a rich network of community-based organizations from across the province united by the vision of making Alberta one of the best places in the world to grow older. Healthy Aging Alberta focuses on developing a coordinated community-based senior-serving sector that is respected and integrated within the broader seniors’ care system and can empower and inspire every senior to age how they choose, ultimately improving health and social outcomes for older adults.
The free Regional Gatherings are an excellent opportunity for organizations to showcase their work and learn from one another while coming together to strengthen our regional and provincial networks. These day-long events will offer facilitated capacity-building sessions, presentations from CBSS organizations on their innovations in programming and collaboration, and opportunities to network and build supportive and strategic relationships.
Pre-event mingling will be from 8:30 – 10 a.m., with the formal portion of the event between 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. A light breakfast (before 10 a.m.) and a full lunch will be provided.
