OGA Virtual Annual Conference 2021

"Resolve, Resilience, Renewal: Responding to the Present and Reimagining the Future"

The 2021 conference will consist of a series of four professionally produced Zoom sessions on the last four Fridays in October (Oct. 8, 15, 22, 29). All sessions will start at 9:30am and end at 12pm.

The sessions will explore the individual, organizational, and systems-level tools and resources that we have used - and some promising ones being developed - to get through difficult times and move forward as older adults and those who serve them. Highlighted throughout will be issues of diversity, equity and inclusion and how various groups in the older population have been affected by and have responded to the pandemic, wildfires, and racial injustice around the state. Each session will feature several speakers and include two hours of content plus an additional 30 minutes for a break, introductions, and sponsor acknowledgements/ presentations.

October 8: Resilience Through Humor and Storytelling
October 15: Just Surviving or Thriving? Coping Among Diverse Older Adults
October 22: Reimagining Long-Term Care in Times of COVID and Beyond
October 29: Strengthening Community and Connectedness in the Midst of a Pandemic
