Knoxville Livability Summit

(In 2015, Aging: A Family Affair is part of this summit.)

The Office on Aging has hosted an annual fall workshop, Aging: A Family Affair, since 1984. The workshop is offered in the fall, usually on the second Thursday in November, though the date can vary. 

This year, and this year only, Aging: A Family Affair (AFA) is joining with two other agencies to offer an event called the Knoxville Livability Summit. This summit will be held on Thursday, November 12, at Rothchild Conference Center, 8807 Kingston Pike, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The summit's workshops will provide practical information on a variety of topics for caregivers, seniors, people with disabilities, professionals, community leaders, and home and community design/modification specialists. The cost for the day is $25 and includes lunch, an exhibitors’ fair, and materials. The day starts with a keynote address that is attended by all who have registered.  After that, speakers who are considered experts in their fields discuss topics of interest in the workshop’s 14 seminars that are offered in three sessions during the day. Participants choose three of the seminars to attend.

UT Medical Center is our major sponsor this year, along with support from Tennova Healthcare, Knoxville News Sentinel, Covenant Senior Services, and LHP Management, Inc.. The support of all of these organizations helps keep the cost of this summit low.
