The Center is proud of our partnership with the Wayne State University Institute of Gerontology (IOG). The IOG is committed to engaging and educating seniors in our communities. One of their premier events is the Art of Aging Successfully Annual Senior Conference, which brings hundreds of seniors together to experience well-respected keynote speakers and break-out workshops promoting creative expression, social connection and information on ways to positively embrace all facets of aging. In addition, time is provided to take a stroll through the Gallery Walk, which is a display of art created by local area seniors. Sandy Adams has attended this event for the last three years and says, “Art of Aging is a wonderful event. The energy and creativity of those that attend is inspiring.” This year’s conference will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2013, at the Greater Grace Conference Center in Detroit and is sure to be another sell-out event. Sandy sits on the Board of Visitor’s for the Institute of Gerontology and will be representing the Center at the Art of Aging event.
