The 2014 DC Enabled by Design-athon will gather 150-250 people with disabilities and their families, designers, engineers, hackers and makers to the MLK Library and Google’s new DC offices to design and build accessible products which provide innovative solutions for the everyday challenges faced by people with disabilities and older adults.
his 2-day weekend workshop will provide participants with an interactive experiential learning space to proactively create a flexible, healthy and fulfilling life. Longevity research shows that as people approach the second half of life, a shift in perspective occurs. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to use this new perspective and value-based techniques in a productive way to stay physically fit, retain mental agility, feel financially secure, connect to others through meaningful social networks, and design a thriving future. Using your creativity, this course will help you uncover meaning and purpose in life through self-reflection and a focus on what is personally important to you.

This one and a half day conference has become a must-attend event and catalyst for accelerating adoption of tech-enabled care across the continuum of aging services. This year’s conference focuses on how technology is transforming the “user experience” of aging services for both older adults and care providers. Don’t miss this opportunity to “sync” with peers and innovators to better position your organization in serving the interests and needs of older adults.
