This presentation will highlight findings from an upcoming major n4a report titled "Supporting America's Aging Prisoner Population: Opportunities and Challenges for Area Agencies on Aging" funded through the Administration for Community Living. Attendees will also hear about federal initiatives related to this issue and learn from Virginia's experience with implementing the Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) program in correctional settings. 

Presenters are Erin Long and Jesse Moore, Administration for Community Living; Meredith Eisenhart, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging; and April Holmes, Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
