Conference Sets 2018 Agenda for RI Seniors

Our Tenth Annual Conference and expo on October 20, 2017 focused on Organizing for Power. Jaime Estades, founder and president of the Latino Leadership Institute in New  York, delivered a powerful keynote speech on influencing legislation. Agenda priorities were set for RI seniors, which were, in order:

  • a better state information system, 
  • increased funding for senior centers, 
  • more support for family and volunteer caregivers, 
  • adequate Medicaid reimbursement for home and community-based  providers and nursing homes, 
  • eliminating Medicare Part B premiums for low-income seniors.

A distinguished panel including, from left:  Maureen Maigret, Representative Deborah Ruggiero, Bill Flynn, Senator Harold Metts, and Lee Ann Byrne held a lively discussion which provided  tools for influencing legislation and legislators.

Volunteer of the Year Sherman Pines is congratulated by Representative Lauren Carson and Senator Dawn Euer.
