Transportation and Aging in Place

Last night I had the chance to sit on a panel discussion for the the Western and Central Virginia chapter of the Aging in Place Council.  The discussion was preceded by a keynote presentation from Dr. Nancy Brossoie, a research associate with the Virginia Tech Center for Gerontology.
