Seeking Stories To Share

Interested parties will have an opportunity to have their story captured on film at the summit. The stories are being gathered to support a public awareness campaign about the needs of LGBT older adults to be launched this fall in collaboration with the three Area Agencies on Aging serving the region. Interested parties must apply online by June 13 at: http://freeonlinesurveys.com/s.asp?sid=ho1xns174ns8iar489974 or by vising the LGBT Older Adult Facebook page.
