Thank you for your interest in creating an opportunity for community education in your community. We are pleased that you see the value of utilizing technology to connect members of your community with valuable educational information. The statewide pilot of the Aging Gracefully Expo (AGE) was made possible because of the generous support of AARP South Dakota and the Office of Attorney General. Special thanks to Jane Strommen, Ph.D., NDSU Extension Gerontology Specialist, for her contributions to the pilot. Based on the success of the Aging Gracefully Expo pilot, SDSU Extension developed this guide to assist others who wish to host AGE in their community. This guide includes expectations, planning timeline, checklist, evaluation tools, and other items to help with preparation for AGE in your community.
