Advocacy is vital to the success of programs, services, and the health and well-being of older adults and people with disabilities. It is important to build relationships with lawmakers to have a voice in how public policy impacts their lives. 

To help address the issues impacting older adults, people with disabilities, and family caregivers, the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of St. Croix County is collaborating with the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources, Inc. (GWAAR) to offer education and advocacy training. The training will be held:

The training will be facilitated by Janet Zander. Janet has been serving as the Advocacy and Public Policy Coordinator for GWAAR for the past nine years. She coordinates the advocacy and public policy objectives for the agency and for the Wisconsin Aging Advocacy Network (WAAN) of which GWAAR is a member. Janet previously served as the Director of the ADRC of Portage County. She has worked with older adults, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers across the long-term care continuum for over 30 years. She holds a master’s degree in public administration and is also a state Certified Social Worker (CSW). 

The deadline to register is Thursday, April 14. To register contact the ADRC by phone at 715-381-4360 or email adrcinfo@sccwi.gov
