On Thursday November 7th Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County, in partnership with the University of Michigan School of Social Work and The Turner Geriatric Center of Michigan Medicine, will be hosting Innovations in Aging, a special symposium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The goal of this special symposium is to bring together experts in the field of aging to discuss issues relevant to serving older adults. Innovations in Aging aims to offer diverse presentations from gerontology specialists, physicians, professionals in the field of aging, researchers, social workers, lawyers, insurance specialists, finance consultants and more. Topics of interest may include aging in place, health and well-being, the role of caregivers, breaking down barriers of aging, isolation, seniors marginalized by society, legal safeguards for older adults, art and older adults, keeping up with technology, senior care, mobility and quality of life.  Approximately 250 individuals from different industries will come together to engage in the many sessions offered. The growing aging population will soon dramatically change the landscape of many sectors. JFS is excited to be a leader in this conversation in Washtenaw County with our WISE Older Adult Services to ensure that systems will be in place to address the changes that will occur.


The Symposium will be held at the Horace Rackham School of Graduate Studies. The cost for the day is $100. Scholarships and Financial Assistance avialable. Breakfast, lunch, and a small reception after the event are all included. For more information please feel free to reach out to Jake Singer at
