KEYNOTE  |  Impact of Housing and Social Determinants of Health

Janet Hunko, LMSW; Director, Housing Bureau for Seniors

While many of the efforts of the housing and homelessness community have been around addressing literal homelessness, the Housing Bureau for Seniors’ (HBS) efforts are focused primarily on prevention and the hidden factors that can lead to homelessness. Through the lens of Social Determinants of Health, the organization focuses on factors such as hidden homelessness, housing instability, and unaffordable housing. This keynote will address how HBS significantly reduces the likelihood that the older adults whom they serve will face literal homelessness through interventions and case management services.

Janet Hunko HeadshotJanet M. Hunko, LMSW, is the Director of the Housing Bureau for Seniors, a program of the University of Michigan at Michigan Medicine, where she oversees crucial work that empowers older adults to find and maintain sustainable permanent housing. She currently serves on the boards of directors for SAGE Metro Detroit, the National Share Housing Resource Center, co-chairs the Geriatric Social Workers of Southwest Michigan as well as other various community collaborations relating to the health and well-being of older adults. In addition, Janet is a part-time lecturer at Eastern Michigan University where she teaches courses relating to working with older adults. In her free time Janet enjoys gardening, golf, and spending time with her family.

KEYNOTE  |  The Future of Our Health System

Cathy Jacobson; President and CEO, Froedtert Health

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals were increasingly held accountable by payers and communities to coordinate the care of patients outside of their walls. As the pandemic continues to evolve, we are learning how COVID-19 has increased the demand on our health system and is presenting new challenges. Nowhere is this more important than in the senior population, which is projected to grow at a faster pace than any other population sector of the state through 2040. Learn how hospitals and health systems are addressing needs such as social determinants of health and care coordination while working through the complexities of a pandemic and planning for possible innovations and interventions in the future.

KEYNOTE  |  The Spirituality of Dying: Living Life with Meaning

Rev. Jana Troutman-Miller; Chaplain, St. John’s On the Lake

There are two undisputed facts of life: you were born, and you will die.  In between those absolutes is a world of possibilities for how to live a full and meaningful life. Though there is no denying our eventual death, our instinct is often to fear death, which can get in the way of living. In this presentation we will explore what it looks like to live our best life by accepting our eventual death, and how we can develop a healthy and meaningful relationship with dying at any stage of life. 

Jana Troutman Miller HeadshotJana Troutman-Miller has served for 18 years as a professional health care chaplain. She has worked in the areas of child, adolescent and adult mental health and addictions, acute care, and long-term care. She currently serves as chaplain at Saint John’s On The Lake, a retirement community in Milwaukee, WI. She earned her certificate in Spiritual Direction from The Haden Institute in 2018, is an Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Milwaukee, is a board-certified chaplain with the Association of Professional Chaplains where she sits on the board of directors and is the chair of the Commission on Certification for the organization, and holds a Master of Arts degree in counseling ministry from Lincoln Christian Seminary.
