Elders in Training Summit March 3-4 in Fairbanks

The 7th Annual We Are All Elders In Training Summit will be held March 3 and 4 in Fairbanks at the Raven Landing Community Center, 1222 Cowles Street.

This year's theme is "Inspired Aging; Limitless Opportunities." The event features presentations by elders sharing their life experiences and strategies for aging and well-being. Each sharing will be followed by group discussions targeting issues around aging and mental health. The public is encouraged to join for group discussions and closing circles each day, and get an opportunity to address the issues of aging and mental health.

The vision of the Trust Training Cooperative (TTC) for offering Elder Summit experiences is to give our elders, seniors and pioneers an environment and forum where they can be listened to, learned from and honored for the wisdom and life learning they possess.

The goal is to provide guest speakers and round table discussion participants with an audience interested in these reflections and dialogue in a continuing learning community experience. Actual "products," additional actions and activities may come from these summit events and are welcomed. The main purpose however, is the growth of learning through sharing and listening.

Senior registration fee is $10; provider registration fee, $50. Register online at http://ttclms.org/class_detail.php?z_classid=105891.

Registration is limited to 75 participants.
