The Mar Vista Community Council Aging in Place Speaker Series presents Gerontologist Susi Rodriguez Shapiro, who will conduct a workshop on Emergency Preparedness for Older Adults. There are many specifics to consider for Older Adults beyond what we already know about basic emergency preparedness. She will walk us through the completion of the File of Life and how to create a Go Kit. Remember that when it comes to Emergency Preparedness . . . "You CAN'T Predict them . . . You CAN'T Prevent them . . . You Can ONLY PREPARE for them!!!"
Susi Rodriguez Shapiro, M.S.G., is an award winning committed advocate for older adults and caregivers with over a decade of recognized leadership and strategic vision in the private, non-profit, and government sectors. Ms. Shapiro is a Gerontologist with a Master of Science in Gerontology degree from USC and is a Cum Laude graduate of UCLA. She is a Master Trainer certified by Stanford University. Her passion for advocacy has led her to work with numerous senior-focused organizations, including AARP, Alzheimer's Association, Area Agencies on Aging for both the City and County of L.A., Community Based Organizations, and several of the major Healthcare Plans.
The full agenda will be posted 72 hours prior to the meeting.
