WELCOME TO AGING IN AMERICA

ASA’S MISSION: ASA is the essential resource to cultivate leadership, advance knowledge and strengthen the skills of our members and others who work with, and on behalf of, older adults. We are excited to have the Aging in America Conference back in our home town of San Francisco. Once again, the programs and events at this year’s conference do an excellent job of bringing ASA’s mission to life. The conference presents a comprehensive 360-degree curricular view of the multidisciplinary issues, challenges and opportunities in aging. As you’ve come to expect from ASA throughout the year, Aging in America features many programs on issues of policy and advocacy, as we recognize this is an unprecedented time for our nation’s commitment to addressing the critical issues affecting older adults, their families and those who serve them. The ASA Board approved an expanded policy voice for ASA and its members, because there is just too much at stake for all of us and those we represent and serve. See page 19 for a list of some our featured policy programs.

ASA’S VISION: The field of aging is diverse and highly skilled in the issues and opportunities facing older adults. As a result, the quality of life of older adults is enhanced. By attending Aging in America, you are a catalyst for bringing ASA’s vision to life in your community. We hope that the conference is helpful to you in achieving your mission as well. ASA’s Executive Committee, CEO, and our Board of Directors, staff and Conference Co-Chairs welcome you to Aging in America.

The New Wave of Population Health Management: CBOs in the Forefront Sponsored by Preferred Population Health Management. Tuesday, March 27 | 11:00 AM–Noon Continental Ballroom (Tower 3, Ballroom Level) While for many in the field of aging, population health is a concept we are just wrapping our arms around, for the leaders in this field, population health is moving into a whole new generation of analytics and tailored interventions. Enhanced individual tracking of “impactable patient populations” that aggregates data upward and combines with historical claims to create predictive scenarios is driving the growing interest in population health solutions. With these exciting developments comes the challenge of scaling this work in communities and the established

aging network provides a unique infrastructure that could readily be deployed. Hear from our experts, both on the res earch and operational sides of this discussion, about the opportunity in front of us to better serve America’s complex patients in a targeted, systematic and integrated approach to care. Presenters : Connie Benton Wolfe, MA, President and CEO, Aging & In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana, Inc; Malaz Boustani, MD, MPH, Professor of Aging Research, Chief Innovation and Implementation Science, Indiana Clinical Translation Science Institute, Indiana University School of Medicine; Lance Robertson, MPA, Administrator and Assistant Secretary for Aging, Administration for Community Living.

Alzheimer’s disease devastates the minds of patients, creates substantial burdens for families and caregivers and costs the United States billions of dollars each year. The disease itself is one of the most complex researchers have ever studied. Despite that, America’s biopharmaceutical companies are committed to combatting this devastating disease, with 87 potential new treatments in clinical trials today. However, the path from research to a new medicine is extremely long and complex with many setbacks along the way, particularly in the case of Alzheimer’s. Scientists have made progress in unraveling the complexities of the brain and identifying
