Jeanette has been involved with CCA and formerly Colorado Senior Lobby for over 23 years. She retired from The Colorado Department of Human Services as the Director of Aging and Adult Services, after working for 32 years for the state. When she is not at the Capitol lobbying our legislators, she is walking/hiking with her dogs, spending time with her granddaughters and refinishing furniture.

After serving on the Board of Directors at SRC for 6 years, Chris was appointed to the role of President and CEO in February of 2019. After a 20+ year career in real estate, Chris has had the opportunity to serve in advisory capacities on numerous Boards, as well as helping to serve older adults in his real estate practice.  Chris is a 5th generation Colorado native, and enjoys time fly fishing, biking, and time with his family.

Age-Friendly Healthcare for Caregivers (virtual workshop)

Do you advocate for the healthcare of an older adult? Have you ever been told their symptoms were "normal for their age?" Or, have you experienced ageism in how healthcare providers respond to your concerns? This isn't just unpleasant; it can negatively impact health outcomes. But, by understanding what ageism looks like in healthcare you will be better prepared. More than 41 million caregivers provide care to older people in the U.S. This virtual workshop addresses the intersection of caregiving and ageism.
