MoSP Events

Missourians for Single Payer invite you to:

"Independent Transportation Network: Freewheeling Seniors"

Missourians for Single Payer invite you to “Independent Transportation Network; Freewheeling Seniors” MoSP’s free public program Thursday, March 16, 6:30 pm in the Hanke Room at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, 9001 Clayton Road. *Margie Diekemper, Certified Public Health Nurse, will lead the discussion on helping seniors stay healthy and active through transportation.

St. Louis County’s Age Friendly Initiative exposed the challenges faced by seniors in accessing affordable transportation to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Senior advocates approached the St. Charles County ITN (Independent Transportation Network) about expanding their 5 year old program into St. Louis County. A Steering Committee has an ambitious fundraising and community outreach program to get ITN Gateway running by summer of 2017 in the mid-county corridor. Margie, a representative of the Steering Committee will discuss this essential program for adults 60+ and visually impaired adults 21+.

*Margie Diekemper, a public health nurse, has been an active senior advocate in her retirement. In addition to her work as a volunteer CLAIM Medicare Counselor, she also chaired the University City Senior Commission from 2014-2017 and remains an appointed Commission member. She is one of the “charter” members of the ITN Gateway Steering Committee working to bring this not-for-profit transportation option to St. Louis County seniors and visually impaired adults.

Ample parking is located behind the building by the rear entrance. Cancellations due to extreme weather will be posted at 2 pm on Thursday on our website: www.mosp.us.
