Opportunity – “Aging in America” bus tour
Alliance for Holistic Aging www.holistcaging.org is helping to promote an “Aging in America” bus tour that one of our members, Dr. Marion Somers www.drmarion.com will be embarking on in selected southern cities in the fall. Our conversation and this subsequent e-mail are meant to provide you with information about the upcoming tour and ask that you share this information with some of your local colleagues and contacts.
Through a spirit of collaboration and inclusion we hope to generate a greater awareness around aging and caregiver issues and help to spotlight some of the local resources, service providers, and initiatives available to address caregiver and community needs. With your help I am hoping to identify:
Sites and contacts that are located in the D.C. area Events (i.e. conferences etc.) that may be coming up that could potentially tie into this Other individuals, organizations, or initiatives that you are associated with that may also benefit from possible collaboration and expanded media coverage In an earlier tour this spring, Dr. Marion and her team were quite successful in gaining coverage on local T.V. stations. Her previous stops, as well as those she is planning for this upcoming tour are being filmed for possible showings on Retirement Living Television, Dr.Marion.com, boomertowne.com and other partner sites later in the year. So, it could serve as a vehicle (no pun intended) for additional exposure for selected sites as well.
As I mentioned The Southern States Tour will launch in the Baltimore and DC. area on September 26. Below are the anticipated tour cities. You can learn more about Dr. Marion and the previous tour by visiting her web site www.drmarion.com.
