GenPhilly highlights careers impacting seniors

Philadelphia has the highest proportion of people over 60 out of the ten largest cities in the United States, and Pennsylvania is expected to become the oldest state in the nation by 2020.

Generation Appreciation Philadelphia is holding a public forum to encourage organizations and businesses to be more intentional about addressing the needs o the region’s aging population.

From community development, to the arts, law, social work, and more, each profession has the opportunity to touch the lives of older people and help our city become a lifelong community.

At its forum on Thursday, April 8th, 5:30-7:30pm at United Way, 1709 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, GenPhilly will report on organizations that incorporate seniors into their programs, policy, and planning.  Participants will learn how they can include the needs of the older population into their current positions, and if they already do, meet a group that can provide a support network for them.

The keynote speaker is Holly Lange, Senior Vice President, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging.

To RSVP, email Kate Clark at or call 215-765-9000 ext. 5072.
