Description

We have another call for input, and this time it is on a topic that I think we should really challenge ourselves with, elderly. Honestly, we need to consider heavily how to include the elderly in online forums. The request is for up to 800 words per topic, and there are 4 topics. We can write about one or all four.

Who would like to collaborate on this document?
