Making The Difference:
Leveraging Social Determinants 
The Impact of Age-Friendly Change in Alameda County
Join us on November 1st!
Alameda County is stepping up to embrace age-friendly change - with four cities well into the process, and the County itself recently joining the worldwide Age-Friendly Communities movement. Now the rubber hits the road and it's time to get our silos aligned so we can maximize the potential of age-friendly change to improve health and life outcomes. If we're going to rock this, we need clarity on what age-friendly change means in practical terms, who are the partners we need to engage, and how can our systems, organizations, and we ourselves re-tune and reframe.

Making The Difference will convene community-based service providers, health care professionals, health and social services agency leaders, local policy makers and community members. Join us! Together we will do a deep dive into what it takes to make a difference for older people in Alameda County.
