Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, President of The John A. Hartford Foundation, has written a blog published on n4a's Aging and Disability Business Institute website entitled, "Ensuring Health Systems Become Age-Friendly."

The blog details the initial stages of the Age-Friendly Health Systems model, and the rapid movement into the next stages of the initiative via an Action Community of health care teams.

Dr. Fulmer makes the point that community-based organizations have long-standing & deep expertise in age-friendly care and play a pivotal role, and invites community-based organizations to join the Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community as vital partners.
