Join Big Hearts for Seniors virtually with emcee Vic Strecher, Ph.D., M.P.H., professor of health behavior and health education in the U-M School of Public Health, as they celebrate their 15th anniversary and present Big Hearted Stories: Experiences of Aging. This is a free evening of local storytelling, connection, and entertainment.
Big Hearts for Seniors was formed to support critical services for our aging community members. This collaborative is comprised of five community non-profit programs serving older adults: Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels, Housing Bureau for Seniors, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Silver Club Memory Programs, and the Turner Senior Wellness Program. These programs help seniors access home-delivered meals, sustainable housing options, support to remain independent, learning in retirement opportunities, relief from social isolation, and programs for those with dementia.
Since 2006, Big Hearts for Seniors has raised sponsor support funds and generous community donations through various events including the Big House/Big Heart races, silent auctions, and documentary film screenings. All funds raised are used to provide needed services to older adults.
