Join SAGE Maine for Spring Awakening, our 3rd LGBTQ+ Aging Symposium! This important event, held every other year, will be virtual and take place on the platform Zoom. Together, we will explore several topics of interest to the community, from housing to self-care to state policy. Beyond that, this will be a space for us to gather as a community and uplift one another after a very long year. We are also excited to host a pre-event Happy Hour on the eve of the Symposium with the opportunity to connect with LGBTQ+ older adults all across the state.""

We are especially excited to announce that Dr. Nirav Shah, Director of Maine CDC, will be joining us for this event! Join us as we learn more about the future of COVID-19 prevention in Maine. Other speakers for the day include Aaron Tax, Director of Advocacy for SAGE USA, Jane Margesson, AARP Maine’s Communications Director, and Susan Corbett, Director of the National Digital Equity Center.

Stay tuned for a full schedule announcement next week! This event is FREE to attend and registration is required.
