Earlier this month, Governor Charlie Baker was joined by Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders, AARP Board President Eric J. Schneidewind, and Co-Chair of the Governor's Council to Address Aging Eileen Connors, to officially release the Council’s initial recommendations and formally mark the Commonwealth’s designation as a member of AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States . The Council, tasked with providing advice and strategies to promote healthy aging in Massachusetts, recommended the Administration focus on ten initial priorities. The list of recommended priorities includes working to become the Silicon Valley for innovative technology, products, and services related to aging. As an initial step in this process, MeHI has sponsored the Executive Office of Elder Affairs to act as a Champion in this year's PULSE@MassChallenge digital health accelerator class.
