Judah Ronch, Erickson School, in Long-Term Living Magazine

Advocacy does not have to mean getting on a soapbox,” says Erickson School Dean Judah Ronch in his latest Long-Term Living magazine column, “It can take the form of quiet leadership from wherever you are in your organization or community.” For individuals, supporting elders can mean assisting an aging family member with insurance and financial issues or volunteering with a elder policy advocacy organization. Ronch argues, “Working with partners in advocacy and education associations can be critical to keeping abrest of issues that affect services in our communities.” Learn more through his previous L-TL columns or the upcoming UMBC workshop “Do You Worry about Dementia,” facilitated by Ronch and Carol Wynne of the Alzheimer’s Association of Maryland.
