On Saturday, December 2nd AARP co-sponsored an art exhibit showcasing the artwork and stories of older Hispanic/Latino adults who have participated in past LA BROCHA art workshops. LA BROCHA is a project whose goal is to offer art workshops to older Hispanic/Latino adults, especially those with Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia, or Parkinson’s disease.

Over 150 attendees were present and AARP Illinois had a prominent role with Associate State Director, Advocacy & Outreach Álvaro R. Obregón speaking on behalf of AARP and focused on our work in the Hispanic/Latino community as well as our “Salud, Dinero y Amor” campaign.
