Presented by the Department of Aging and Adult Services and KC Communities for All Ages, Mid-America Regional Council.

Join us on Oct. 7, 2020, 3-4:30 p.m. CDT, for an informative workshop on best practices in delivering remote trainings and classes for older adults.

There is no fee to participate in this webinar.

Many formerly in-person, evidence-based programs across the country have transitioned to remote options to protect the health of older adults, staff and program leaders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many other programs delivered by community-based organizations have also transitioned to remote options to reach their constituents.

Just as physical distancing is important, staying engaged and combatting social isolation for program participants is also critical. This webinar offers practical, concrete suggestions on how to incorporate effective delivery of virtual programs designed for older adults.

Join us at this webinar to learn best practices:

  • Participant outreach and recruitment.
  • Data collection.
  • Implementation.
  • Staffing.
  • Privacy and security.
  • Successes from others in the field.

This webinar is relevant to staff and volunteers affiliated with nonprofit organizations that provide evidence-based and other programs and are incorporating proven effective strategies in virtual/remote program implementation.
