This two-day event will feature 3 sessions, all lead by Gary Glazner, the founder and Executive Director of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project. Gary had been scheduled to present at our Art of Aging workshop, and we're happy to finally host him this Fall. All three Poetry Matters sessions are free and open to the public, but we are asking people to register so we can estimate refreshments. You can find the registration link and details about each session on the Poetry Matters page. We hope to see you there!
Disability and Health Summit
The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community and the Indiana State Department of Health, Division of Chronic Disease, Primary Care and Rural Health (ISDH), have been collaborating on the “Indiana Disability and Health Project. ” On August 5, 2016, the project culminated in a statewide event, “Pathways to Health: The Indiana Summit on Disability and Health,” with national speakers on the topic of health and disability. The Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities and ISDH sponsored a "5x5" Pathways to Health Contest, which ended with winners from the communities of Gary and Delaware County, Indiana, pictured above.
