Healthy Aging MV (formerly the Healthy Aging Task Force of the Dukes County Health Council) will host its Annual Meeting.
The keynote speaker will be Bill Novelli, co-chair of the Board of Directors of C-TAC, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care which is headquartered in Washington, D.C. Mr. Novelli is a professor in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and is the former CEO of AARP working on policy at the national and state levels in health, financial security, and good government. Prior to his work at AARP, he was Executive Vice President of CARE, the international relief and development organization. At the meeting, Mr. Novelli will address the issue of advance care planning and the importance of having discussions with family and physicians to establish health care proxies and the documents necessary to guide one’s medical and end-of-life care.
To learn more, and to sign up to volunteer for HAMV’s workgroups addressing housing, transportation, health, caregiving, and more, attend the meeting. A light breakfast will be provided.
