Maine Aging Study Underway

The University of Southern Maine (USM) is conducting a survey for the Office of Aging and Disability Services. To help us plan for the changing needs of Mainers who are age 55 or older, the study will ask questions about transportation, nutrition, and other issues. Hundreds of people will receive email or phone calls from the Muskie School at USM asking you to share your opinions and experiences. The email will come from Muskie School USM. If you receive the email or phone call, please help by completing the survey. This is a copy of the letter you will get in the email.

Thank you for your help with this important study. For more information, you can contact James Moorhead, Aging Services Manager, Office of Aging and Disability Services. The main office number is 207-287-9200.
