Healthy Aging Communication Network (HACN)
The Healthy Aging Communication Network (HACN) provides communication tools on vital information, educational and evidence-based programs as resources to key partners, health professionals, the public and policy-makers. HACN members can link to programs that support good health and reduce risk for disability for older adults. The HACN has three major focus areas:
The HACN will link various members of the aging network including: state and local health departments, the Arizona Department of Economic Security (Arizona's Unit on Aging), the local Area Agencies on Aging, academia and various health-related agencies to address issues related to the healthy aging of Arizonans.
Regularly scheduled meetings are held via the web as well as impromptu meetings called to address a particular need of a registered member of the HACN.
The HACN provides issue briefs, fast facts, data summaries, annotated bibliographies, materials for marketing programs and for influencing decision-makers, and much more. Materials are downloadable for use in the public domain.
