Aging In Place Conference

The Connecticut Interfaith Network on Aging (CINA) is holding its annual caregiving conference on Aging In Place on Tuesday, September 26, 2006, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. At the Mercy Center in Madison, CT. Call 203.230.8994 and speak to Barbara Barlock, if you want more info.

I'm amazed that the conference and the CINA don't have web sites. They should.

In the spirit of giving them some web time, the conference's opening speaker is the Honorable Edith Prague, a CT State Senator. She is Co-Chair of the Labor and Public Employees Committee and Vice Chair, Select Committee on Aging. She speaks at 9:30 am.

She will speak on Aging in Connecticut: Where have we been? Where are we going?

Also speaking are: The Rev. Barbara Barlock, chairperson of the Connecticut Interfaith Network on Aging. She is a minister of the United Church of Christ and Director of Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers of Greater New Haven.

Imam Abdul-Majid Karim Hasan, Resident Imam of the Muhammad Islamic Cneter, Hamden.

The Rev. Louise B. Higginbotham, Pastor Emerita of the United Church on the Green, UCC.

Rabbi Gloria Rubin, Spiritual Director of Temple B'Nai Abraham, Meriden.

Cornelia Leavitt-Scudder, B'Hai Faith.
