Business Institute On the Road Again in NY State
In September and October, staff from n4a's Aging and Disability Business Institute are providing business acumen training to AAA staff in five New York cities (Albany, Buffalo, Lake Placid, New York City and Syracuse). The trainings are helping to prepare New York's AAAs to play a leading role in the state's delivery system reforms.
The trainings are the second in a series of regional meetings that are part of the Business Acumen Training Initiative, which is a two-year project funded by the New York State Office for the Aging through a grant to the Association on Aging in New York (Aging NY). Aging NY has contracted with the Business Institute in partnership with Williams Jaxon Consulting, LLC and Clear View Strategies, LLC to provide this combination of virtual and in-person trainings. This fall's training provided an in-depth look at the Medicaid waiver process, and some of the exciting work happening in NY related to contracting with community-based organizations—including AAAs—to provide services related to the social determinants of health.
