Fall 2021 Showcase

Showcase Overview 

The California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics (CCGG) will be hosting a Fall Showcase that gives an opportunity for students, faculty, and the greater community to share their work and research with the larger CCGG community. The spring and fall showcases provide a wonderful forum to connect and learn about the work that our colleagues are doing. It is also great for presenters to be able to share their information with a smaller, highly engaged audience.

2021 Spring Showcase – April 29, 2021

California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics

2021 SPRING SHOWCASE

The California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics (CCGG) will be hosting a Spring Showcase for students, faculty, and the greater community to share their work and research. Due to the pandemic, we had our first showcase in the fall in lieu of the annual conference. While we look forward to one day being able to meet in a large group in-person, the spring and fall showcases provide a wonderful forum to connect and learn about the work that our colleagues are doing. It is also great for presenters to be able to share their information with a smaller, highly engaged audience.

The 2021 Spring Showcase is on April 29 from 9:00-11:00am and will be held via Zoom video conferencing.  Please mark your calendar to join us even if you are not interested in presenting your research/work. Our initial 2020 Fall Showcase was a big hit, and we’re looking forward to the next one!

Advocacy Alert: California’s Next Older Americans Act State Plan

CDA’s Older Americans Act State Plan Public Hearings
The California Department of Aging (CDA) is developing California’s next Older Americans Act (OAA) State Plan and is seeking robust and diverse public input on the plan through upcoming remote hearings and online surveys. All information about the OAA State Plan is posted on our website.

California’s OAA State Plan for 2021-2025 will guide the Older Americans Act programs and funding and will align CDA’s OAA goals with Area Plans submitted by the 33 Area Agencies on Aging, the Governor’s Master Plan for Aging, and CDA’s Strategic Plan. OAA State Plans are due from CDA, as California’s designated unit on aging, to the Administration for Community Living every four years. The plan currently in development will be effective from October 1, 2021 through 2025.  The OAA State Plan draft report and a summary power point are posted on the webpage, for public review.
 
CDA, in partnership with the California Commission on Aging (CCoA), will hold two virtual public hearings and offer a survey and email box during April to gather input on the draft 2021-25 Older Americans Act State Plan. CDA and CCoA are interested in receiving input from older adults, people with disabilities, family and friend caregivers, and agencies, advocates, and allies that work with these individuals, as well as the general public. Please share this information with your networks, so a broad range of public comment can be provided and incorporated into the final OAA plan.

There are three ways to provide your comments: Provide input during one of the two public hearings (the two hearings will cover the same information) – information below Send your input via this short survey Email questions and comments to oaastateplan@aging.ca.gov
