Monday, June 3, 2019

Join Boomers, Shakers and Beyond on June 18 when Emily Long from the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disabilities conducts a workshop offering tips on how to make the most of one's appointment, how to effectively discuss health concerns with the doctor, coordinating care and assistance and making decisions about treatment.

Ms. Long has worked in aging for over 10 years in a variety of settings including long-term care and primary care, research, and state level policy. Emily has served as the Research and Policy Analyst for the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability since 2016. She began her career in aging by working with older adults as a certified nursing assistant in a local long-term care facility in Tennessee. It was this experience that lead to a passion to improve the lives of older adults. She holds bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Psychology from the UT Knoxville, as well as a master’s in public health from Emory University.

Boomers, Shakers, and Beyond is a community enrichment program designed for adults 50 + focusing on mind, body, and spirit. The program is designed for learning new things, enhancing old skills, exchanging thoughts on numerous topics, meeting new people, participating in community service projects, and in general having a great time!
