Michigan Commission on Services to the Aging to hold public hearing at Ferris State University

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Commission on Services to the Aging (CSA) will hold a public hearing on Friday, July 17, 2015, at 1 p.m. to hear from local residents about aging services in the state of Michigan.

The CSA advises the governor, Michigan Legislature, and the Aging & Adult Services Agency within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on policies and programs affecting older adults in Michigan.

“The commission’s public hearings are critically important to our work and truly help us have a better understanding of the choices people want to have available as they age,” said Matthew Adeyanju, Ph.D, MPH, dean of Ferris State University’s College of Health Professions and CSA member. “I hope to see a strong turnout and a productive discussion around how we can improve aging services as a state.”

The meeting will be held in room 202A in the University Center at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich.

Residents who need accommodations to attend the meeting may contact Carol Dye at 517-373-8268 or DyeC1@michigan.gov.
