“Our personal experiences and journeys of providing care provide our first layer of knowledge and experience that we can use to advocate for the services that we need. For the services that our loved ones need.”
This episode of Strength in the Midst of Change features Dr. Angie Perone, who is the Congressional Health Policy Fellow in Senator Tammy Baldwin’s office and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow at the National Academy of Medicine. She earned her PhD in Social Work and Sociology from U-M in 2021 and is a CEW+ Scholar alum. As of July 1, she is also a tenure-track assistant professor at the University of California Berkeley School of Social Welfare, where she will also lead its Center for the Advanced Study of Aging Services.
Angie shares her insights about caring for aging adults and finding your power as an advocate in your own experience. Make sure to listen to the end to hear her talk about finding your path at and after U-M.
