Recap: ECHO Workshop #14 "Maintaining Health and Financial Security as We Age"

On October 17th, AAHI, in partnership with the African American Health Program, the Latino Health Initiative, and the Community Action Agency, hosted our 14th Empowering Community Health Organizations (ECHO) Workshop! This workshop, "Maintaining Health and Financial Security as We Age", is the last of our three part series focusing on the needs, impacts, and opportunities of an aging community. A new series will begin in the spring of 2018.

Our ECHO Project is a series of professional and practical training workshops designed to build the capacity and sustainability of community organizations.

Prior to the workshop, attendees were able to visit our resource for information on various services and programs available for older residents.

The workshop was conducted in a panel discussion format and representatives from the Montgomery Department of Health and Human Services Aging and Disability Services, the Social Security Administration, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), and the Coalition for the Advancement of Financial Education (C.A.F.E. Montgomery MD) were invited to talk about the importance of planning ahead as we age and understanding the health and financial demands that may arise along with aging.

Over 70 attendees, representing close to 40 organizations, came to the workshop. Thank you to our wonderful panelists, Steering Committee, and staff for making this a successful event. We look forward to seeing you again in our spring 2018 ECHO Workshop!
