Harmony visited Columbus, Ohio for the 2013 Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (O4A) Conference. In true Ohio fashion, the first day of the conference got off to a snowy start as vendors, speakers and over 470 participants gathered at the Hilton Columbus at Easton for a day filled with engaging sessions, workshops, and awards.
Enid Borden of the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger (NFESH) delivered a passionate call to action to end senior hunger, during her opening keynote address.
After the keynote and opening luncheon, attendees participated in workshops that covered a variety of topics, like The Changing Landscape for AAAs and Consumers and Financial Exploitation of the Elderly.
During breaks, attendees checked out the vendor tables and visited with conference sponsors. Harmony was pleased to sponsor the O4A Conference again this year.
Day two of the 2013 O4A Conference kicked off with a general session led by the Ohio Department of Medicaid and Ohio Department of Health. A variety of workshops followed.
Ann D. Gross, Acting Director of Communications at the Disability Practice Institute delivered the closing keynote address on providing disability-competent care for an aging population.
Harmony would like to congratulate the O4A team on another successful event!
