We are delighted to invite you to Forward Chicago’s first-ever conference, Aging Your Way, to be held Saturday, June 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Swedish Covenant’s Anderson Pavilion (2751 W. Winona Ave.).

For quite some time, people have asked for an opportunity to get together and learn more about how they can have their best aging experience. From legal and health topics and connections as we age, to housing and aging at home, Aging Your Way will be fun, interactive and reflective, filled with people you care about and people who share your interests. Our goal is that you leave feeling better connected, better prepared and inspired for your future.

The focus of this event is on you and your future, and the conference will provide a roadmap of resources and connections that will provide a path for tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you as we learn, grow and connect — together.
