Free Webinar~ Communities & COVID-19: Age-Friendly Approaches


The Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network present a free webinar on “Helping Communities Manage COVID-19: Learning from Age-Friendly Approaches”
The Coronavirus pandemic has upended communities and highlighted differences in access to health, secure housing, and transportation by age, income, and race. Older adults have been particularly hard-hit, particularly people who were already at risk of isolation and food insecurity.

 Danielle Arigoni, Director of Livable Communities at AARP and Lindsey Wallace of the National Main Street Center examine how communities can use an “age-friendly” lens to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and deploy strategies to help them recover from the pandemic.

This will be the third offering of Planning With Purpose: A Smart Growth Network Webinar Series on Community Revitalization, hosted by the Maryland Department of Planning in coordination with the Smart Growth Network.

Date:Thursday, August 27

Time: 10:00 am. Pacific Time
