"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence

The number of adults 65 years and older and individuals living with disabilities is expected to increase significantly over the next decades. As a result, the need to examine the issues and challenges associated with aging and disability continue to grow in importance for both individuals and society as a whole. The IOM/DBASSE Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence provides a neutral venue for broad ranging discussions for coordination and integration of aging and disability stakeholders, particularly among public and private entities.
