MHAC Relaunches ‘Equity in Aging’ Initiative with Webinar on “The Infrastructure of Care”

Jul 26, 2023

After the former Equity in Aging Workgroup revamped the Healthy Aging for All Guide to help advance equity in age and dementia friendly communities and hosted a webinar series on supporting diverse caregivers, the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative relaunched its Equity in Aging initiative as a learning collaborative.

The kick-off webinar featured research from nine Boston-area communities on how urban planning and community development shape caregiving experiences.

The presenter, Andrew Binet (they/them), is an Assistant Professor in the School of Community and Regional Planning at the University of British Columbia, but completed their PhD and Postdoctoral Fellowship at MIT, and co-led the Healthy Neighborhoods Study which explores how neighborhood change shapes community health across the Boston metropolitan area.

Dr. Binet’s slides from the webinar are available here and the recording for the webinar is available here (passcode:
3&11?!ZU). The recording will be available until August 22nd. Be on the lookout for an announcement of upcoming meetings and news on MHAC’s blog and newsletter.
