Connecting Providers with Education Experts & Pharmacy Partners
We’re connecting members with experts through our Online Coronavirus Policy Update calls. Check out interview recordings and summaries from recent one-on-one discussions with LeadingAge, including Dr. Martha Dawson, President of the National Black Nurses Association, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Vice Dean of the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Dr. Jerome Adams U.S. Surgeon General.
Educating & Telling Our Story on Social Media
As the vaccine arrives at member organizations, we have an important opportunity to help tell the story of the COVID vaccine in aging services. Opening our doors to share this experience allows us to tell our stories of hope and resilience. By sharing pictures and videos of members’ staff and older adults getting vaccinated, we can show directly that aging services providers are getting the job done around vaccination, while also serving as the education itself by modelling the right behavior. Follow LeadingAge on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram using the handle @leadingage. For social media infocards you can post, view there here.
