Posted on June 24, 2021

Second Wave – Michigan published a story June 24 about the age-friendly everything movement in Michigan, including the Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative.

The story includes a quote from Ewa Panetta, manager, patient safety & quality, MHA Keystone Center. Panetta discusses the 4Ms Framework that hospitals active in the MHA Keystone Center Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community are implementing in their organizations. She also shares an example of how simple solutions can be used to align communities more with age.

“There are simple solutions that we don't think about unless we are in a specific situation," said Panetta. "We are all going to get older and age. Our goal is that we can age in a way that still provides quality of life."
