Councilmember Mitchell J. Brown is joining Age-Friendly Columbus and Franklin County, and The Ohio State University, to celebrate five years of progress and the opening of the new Age Friendly Innovation Center. The center's mission is to innovate with older adults through research, education, and engagement to ensure inclusion and build resiliency to make our communities age-friendly. This center will be a hub to test innovative solutions to improve the quality of life for older residents in Central Ohio. After five years of service to the residents of Columbus, Age Friendly Columbus will be moving into this new space with new goals and initiatives to continue to improve mobility options for older adults, support their efforts to age at home, and enhance access to recreation and supportive services.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks are required, and attendance will be limited. If you wish to attend, RSVP by emailing Ian Murphy at [email protected].

This announcement will be available on WCBZ Channel 22.6, broadcast on Spectrum, Channel 1024; WOW, Channel 3, and AT&T U-verse, Channel 99. The video will be posted on the City of Columbus YouTube channel following the event.
