Let's Check Out New Developments:
Age-Friendly Virtual Fair Brings Local, State Leaders Together
New Jersey’s first Age-Friendly Virtual Fair was a one-of-kind showcase of the diverse work and partnerships underway within the movement to make the Garden State a better place to age well.

More than 260 people – including key government, community, business, non-profit and academic
leaders – participated in the Sept. 15 virtual conference. 

Read our blog post here to learn more, and
view session recordings here.

With thanks to the entire virtual fair planning team: Rutgers School of Social Work, New Jersey Advocates for Aging Well, The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation, and the Grotta Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Metrowest NJ.
