Kelly Stranburg Selected To Attend International Council On Active Aging "Think Tank" Forum
Joins 60 Global Leaders in Washington D.C. Participating To Brainstorm Challenges Facing Today's Active Aging Industry
By: Sharon Towers
Launched more than 10 years ago, the meetings forge connections among industry leaders while promoting understanding and cohesive action around the ultimate goal: health and quality of life as people age. The forum is also dedicated to forming a think tank to develop strategies that will turn the challenges facing senior living providers into opportunities.
"Active aging means living your life to its fullest - no matter your age. As an organization that's mission is to make this goal achievable for all adults over the age of 50 around the world, the opportunity to have the top minds in the industry together in one room is an important moment for us, " said Colin Milner, CEO of ICAA. "We use these sessions to set our priorities and problem solve on behalf of the industry to achieve our goals to change the way we age for the better."
The theme for this session is focused on the future of technology for active aging and will explore how technology will impact wellness environments, services, staff and customer expectations, engagement and outcomes.
"To have Kelly participating in the ICAA Forum this year is a great honor, and we are excited to have a seat at the table for a discussion that will shape the future of our industry," said Anne O. Moffat, President/CEO of Sharon Towers.
