The AHA next month will launch an Action Community offering free monthly webinars, coaching, resources, in-person meetings and site visits to help hospitals and health systems integrate “age-friendly” health care. The initiative will kick off with webinars Sept. 17 and 25 and begin sharing other content in October. Participants will learn to use the 4Ms Framework — an evidence-based model focused on what matters, medications, mentation and mobility —  to support the needs of aging communities in clinical settings. Sign up here. For more on Age-Friendly Health Systems, an initiative of the John A. Hartford Foundation and Institute for Healthcare Improvement in partnership with the AHA and Catholic Health Association of the United States, click here or email ahaactioncommunity@aha.org.
