Join a Work Group
A monthly work group has been created for each of the 2024 CO-AGE Priorities to flesh them out, collect all the necessary data and information, and ultimately determine the best strategies to bring about change. Meetings are held via Zoom and last for an hour. CO-AGE issue work groups are critical to the success of our advocacy efforts as we prepare for the upcoming legislative session. There is only one meeting left per issue!
The December Work Group schedule is as follows:
Medical Aid in Dying (MAID) Work Group- Tuesday, 12/12/2023 at 1pm
Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Work Group- Thursday, 12/14/23 at 10am
Multidisciplinary Teams for Adult Abuse, Neglect & Exploitation Work Group- Thursday, 12/14/2023 at 1pm
