Meals on Wheels More Than a Meal Research Briefing

Event Horizontal


Meals On Wheels Association of America and AARP Foundation will host a national briefing on March 10, from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at AARP’s Brickfield Center to reveal the findings of groundbreaking research conducted byBrown University’s Center for Gerontology and Healthcare. This new research, being released in celebration of the 13th Annual March for Meals, examines the impact of meal delivery service models on the health and well-being of adults 60 years of age and older. 

At this briefing, you’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from the leadership of both national organizations, the principal investigator, and the executive director of a local Meals on Wheels program that served as a participant recruitment site and was instrumental in study.

The event is open to the public, however, space is limited and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you have any questions, please contact Erika Kelly ([email protected] or 571.339.1604).
