The number of Ohioans age 60 and older is projected to increase by 33.4% between 2010 and 2030. As Ohio’s aging population grows, there are increasing concerns about how to improve the health and well-being of older adults.

This forum will explore challenges faced by older Ohioans, assess the impact of COVID-19 and provide evidence-informed strategies that state and local partners can use to ensure that all Ohioans live longer, healthier lives.
