Senator Eldridge postpones 40th annual Senior Conference due to COVID-19 precautions

ACTON- Due to the growing concerns of the spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19), Senator Eldridge has decided to postpone the 40th Annual Senior Conference originally scheduled for Thursday April 26, 2020.  

Older people are the fastest growing population in Massachusetts, and an increasing number is facing income, health care, and housing insecurity. This conference is meant to provide our older adults with information they can use to help them maintain healthy, financially secure, and independent lifestyles. 

Adults ages 60+ (especially those with heart, lung, and immunological conditions) are the most vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19 and we must do all that we can to protect and help them.  

 “Our priority right now is the health and safety for all the seniors, supporters, vendors and staff,” said State Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). “As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we need make these tough decisions to prevent the spread of this virus and flatten the curve.”
