Aging Summit June 28
The County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Aging & Independence Services (AIS) last week announced that this year’s Aging Summit 2018 event, featuring County Board of Supervisors Dianne Jacob and Greg Cox, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 28, at the Town & Country Convention Center in Mission Valley.
Joan Lunden, the award-winning journalist and former Good Morning America host, will be keynote speaker. There will be a North County site at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, to which the keynote presentation will be webcast. This free event will also feature breakout sessions, resources, and opportunities for participants to meet with local exhibitors. See the attached flyer for additional details.
The theme for Aging Summit 2018 is “Age Well in Action” and we will explore topics such as health and community support, housing, social participation, and transportation, and how together we can positively impact older adults’ lives by achieving goals in each of these areas. In addition, we will focus on how we can all help create a dementia-friendly community where people living with dementia can continue to live rich and meaningful lives that maximize their independence.

Millions have joined the Article V Convention of States movement. Article V of the United States Constitution empowers the states to call a convention to propose amendments.
The Convention of States resolution is limited to reining in federal government, imposing fiscal restraints, and setting term limits for Congress and federal officials, such as judges. Article V is the Founders’ solution to federal corruption, a solution that allows We the People to finally have a say in how our nation operates. Visit www.conventionofstates.com to learn more.
