“Looking back, lessons learned, and looking forward: the impact of the pandemic, fires, and social unrest on California’s older adults.” The past two years have been difficult. Sheltering in place, power outages, and wildfires have affected all of society but have disproportionately impacted older adults. During these unprecedented times, people and organizations have come together to share best practices and expand their services to meet shifting needs and priorities. This presentation will feature speakers from the state and community level who will share how services and policies for older adults have been reshaped as a result of recent emergencies. Presenters:  Richard Figueroa, Deputy Cabinet Secretary, Office of Governor Gavin Newsom; Adriana Rabkin, Director, Marin VOAD; and Nancy Geiss, Chief Operating Officer, Vivalon.
