On Saturday, Nick was honored to speak at the Aging Well Conference at Concordia University.
The conference focused on combating ageism and the role that Age-Friendly advocates can play – highlighting the importance of older adults in our Portland community.
In 2013, the City Council adopted an Action Plan for an Age-Friendly Portland. The Action Plan serves as an important framework for addressing the needs of older adults. And recently, the Council approved funding for the Age-Friendly Portland initiative.
The City of Portland collaborates with many local organizations dedicated to building a vibrant community for all ages. Our partners include Age-Friendly Portland, Elders in Action, AARP Oregon, Portland State University’s Institute on Aging, Multnomah County and more.
Nick serves on the Advisory Committee for Age-Friendly Portland, and as liaison to Elders in Action.
