Missoula Aging Services http://mtpr.net en Funding Impacts on Senior Services http://mtpr.net/post/funding-impacts-senior-services <p>Good evening.&nbsp; I’m Susan Kohler, CEO of Missoula Aging Services; the Area Agency on Aging for Missoula and Ravalli counties. As many of you know, Congress has come to an agreement on the major budget issues that have delayed finalizing the funding for fiscal year 2014, which started October 1.&nbsp; Because Congress has only partially offset sequestration with this budget deal, I want to talk tonight about why it is important that we advocate on behalf of vulnerable older adults.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 27 Dec 2013 20:59:29 +0000 Susan Kohler 12961 at http://mtpr.net Friendship http://mtpr.net/post/friendship <p>Good evening.&nbsp; I’m Susan Kohler, CEO of Missoula Aging Services, the Area Agency on Aging for Missoula and Ravalli counties.&nbsp; This month I celebrate 30 years at Missoula Aging Services and 34 years working in the field of aging.
