Learn how technology can help you at Anchorage Forum

AARP Alaska, Older Persons Action Group and the Anchorage Senior Activity Center continue the series of “Age Smart – Let’s Talk” forums on March 12, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Anchorage Senior Activity Center.

The March topic is “The Tech Age and Tech Agers.” Keeping up with new editions of iPhones, Google, Androids, and apps has many of us throwing up our hands in frustration. Even the terminology — tablets and pads, for instance — often requires us to consult new online dictionaries. But, amid frustration can also come opportunities with new tech answers for mobility, sensory loss, cognitive/memory decline, and the ability to live independently. This exciting gadget-filled evening will be led by Liz Hunt, Assistive Technology Specialist, and Tori Phipps, Outreach Specialist from ATLA (Assistive Technology of Alaska).

The “Age Smart – Let’s Talk” series is a monthly forum that focuses on a topic of interest and importance to Alaskans who want to be thoughtful about how to make good choices as they grow older. The series is developed to provide working age adults with information necessary to plan and fulfill a secure, healthy and satisfying “life After 60” (all ages are welcome). Each month the series highlights a particular topic with a variety of formats, including issue experts, panel discussions, interactive presentations, and plenty of time for questions.
