The enormously popular annual event, featuring this year’s theme “Your Health and Financial Wellness: Looking into the Crystal Ball,” will include informative and exciting presentations by several distinguished speakers.

“The Senior Summit is an excellent opportunity for South County’s older adults and caregivers to recieve critical information on topics of particular importance to them,” said Supervisor Bates.

The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a complimentary continental breakfast.  Back by popular demand is Dr. Laura Mosqueda, Director of Geriatrics, UC Irvine, who will speak on important health issues relevant to older adults.  A panel of renowned experts in the financial and service industries will also be present to discuss the current economy and how it is affecting social and health services available to older adults and caregivers.

“As Supervisor for Orange County’s Fifth District, I’m pleased to serve my constituents by providing them with access to vital resources that can enhance their quality of life,” said Supervisor Pat Bates. “The South County Senior Summit also provides an outstanding opportunity for our residents to become better acquainted with the many programs and services available to them through the County of Orange.”
