Aging Together empowers CBST members age 55+ to foster diverse meaningful relationships, access and share important resources, and think strategically about the future. Aging Together is for everyone—partnered, single, with or without children, local or not—because whatever our situation, we’re all Aging Together.
Our monthly Aging Together group is led by Judy Ribnick, LCSW, MA, Director of Aging Together at CBST, along with guest speakers. Register here if you’ve not attended an Aging Together group. One registration covers all meetings. You’ll get an email before each meeting with the Zoom link.
