Collaboration, Innovation among Key Topics at Upcoming
Aging and Disability Services Conference

2-day conference to be held Sept. 25-26 at Tuscany Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS  – The State of Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) will host a statewide conference Sept. 25-26, 2013 at the Tuscany Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas to bring leaders in the field of aging and disability services together for two days of presentations and discussion.

The conference is intended for professionals who work with aged populations and/or individuals with disabilities across the lifespan to identify innovative and sustainable solutions to ensure the needs of vulnerable Nevadans are met, today and in the future.

The conference’s theme, Mission Possible: Partners Building the Community of Tomorrow, exemplifies the importance ADSD places on facilitating collaboration and partnership among organizations and sharing strategies to better serve our community.

David Ishida, a regional administrator for the Administration for Community Living (ACL), and Mike Willden, director of the State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) are scheduled to give keynote addresses at the conference.

Dr. Jeffrey Cummings, a leading researcher in the mechanisms of Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases, and the director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, is scheduled to present on the conference’s second day.

ADSD’s new administrator, Jane Gruner, will provide the opening address.

More than 20 workshops will be offered during the course of the two-day event. Sessions fall under four categories: Partnerships & Collaboration, Community Living, Innovation & Sustainability, and Healthy Living.

Registration for the conference is $90 (plus an online processing fee), and includes two days of conference sessions, materials, and breakfast and lunch on both days. Attendance is limited. ADSD is encouraging those hoping to attend to register by Sept. 1.
