Age-Friendly Chicago – What Does it Mean for Our Neighborhood?

Age Friendly Chicago

Please join Forward Chicago on Saturday, Nov. 15, at our Ideas into Action meeting. Northwestern University researchers will share data from the Age-Friendly Chicago survey that many of us completed earlier this year.

They will also present data specific to our neighborhoods. Join us as we welcome:

Dr. Amy Eisenstein
Research Assistant Professor
Department of Medical Social Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University

Dr. Rebecca Johnson
Research Assistant Professor
Buehler Center on Aging, Health & Society, Northwestern University

Our guest speakers will share the findings and implications of Chicago’s World Health Organization (WHO) Age-Friendly Survey. (Phase 1 findings of the Age-Friendly Chicago initiative were published in 2013.)

We’ll discuss the citywide data and examine the results specific to our neighborhoods. Expect to learn about housing, transportation needs, finances and more.

We’ll use this information to plan steps that ensure our neighborhoods remain the best places to live — at every age!

When: Saturday, Nov. 15: 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Where: St. Matthias Convent – 4927 N. Claremont (Free parking in the north lot)

Why: Because an age-friendly community benefits us all – join your neighbors to make it happen!

Refreshments will be served. Please call if you need a ride.

Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
