May Events for Older Adults

The Health Insurance Counseling and Protection (HICAP) is presenting "Medicare Fraud: Detection and Prevention." This Zoom event is happening tomorrow, May 11. You can register here.

There's another virtual event occurring on May 16, 2022: National Council on Aging, NCOA Connect, 5th Annual Older Adult Mental Health Awareness Day Symposium, May 16, 2022.  The OAMHAD Symposium will take place from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm EST. OAMHAD Symposium Agenda.

 The Administration for Community Living (ACL), HHS, is designating May 2022 as #OlderAmericansMonth.

"Every May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM). In 2022, ACL will be focusing on aging in place – how older adults can plan to stay in their homes and live independently in their communities for as long as possible. The 2022 theme is Age My Way, an opportunity for all of us to explore the many ways older adults can remain in and be involved with their communities." You can tag your Tweets to @ACL.gov with #AgeMyWay, along with submitting your ideas for participating.

As I mentioned in a previous post, May is also Arthritis Awareness Month. The CDC has a Web page entitled "Arthritis Awareness Month: Expanding Interventions for Arthritis."

UPDATE: I found another Zoom Webinar, this one produced by Janine Vanderburg, featuring the 16-minute film "Antidotes for Ageism: A brief guide to creating inclusive care in an ageist society," followed by a discussion. Sign up here for the May 12, 1 p.m. CDT event.
