AREA AGENCIES ON AGING PRESIDENT: Julie Wetherby, CEO of the Region 2 Area Agency on Aging, has been elected president of the Area Agencies on Aging Association of Michigan. Region 2 manages aging network services in Hillsdale, Jackson, and Lenawee counties.
“The role of 4AM is doubly important these days as our organizations continue to serve seniors and adults with disabilities during the pandemic,” Ms. Wetherby said in a statement. “Our top priorities for the coming year include ensuring that home and community-based services are available to all who need them to live safely and independently in their own homes and local communities. We will be advocates for our direct care work force and for bringing the aging network together to stay strong and supportive of one another. I am extremely honored to have been chosen as 4AM President and look forward to meeting the challenges of 2021.”
