n4a's Programs team was well represented at the AIRS Annual Conference held this week in St. Louis, Missouri.

Among the 80+ workshops was a presentation co-led by n4a's own Virginia Dize, Co-Director, National Aging and Disability Transportation Center and Patrice Earnest, Director, Eldercare Locator. The workshop highlighted the role of Information and Referral in meeting community transportation needs, and sparked a rich discussion with participants about the programs and initiatives that communities are employing to meet unique transportation needs. n4a CEO Sandy Markwood recenty finished her term on the AIRS board.
