LeadingAge Missouri Annual Fall Conference
The theme of this year's program is Expanding the Possibilities. Centenarians often remark that they never could have imagined the countless ways the world has changed throughout their lifetime. Similarly, it's impossible to envision the myriad of changes that will occur in the years ahead. Yet, it is our responsibility to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow. So, with people at the heart of everything we do, we must strive to expand the possibilities for aging well. This conference offers you the unique opportunity to share ways to make life better for today's seniors, while working towards new ideas for the next generation.
