Home » Events » Meet Our Symposium Speakers – Ken Mitchell

Park Springs invites you to join us for a day of insight and information at our Changing the Way We Age & Planning for the Future symposium. Held on September 15th from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm, the event will feature local and national experts on healthy aging, brain fitness, finances, retirement housing options, understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia and much more.

This week we would like to introduce you to Ken Mitchell, former State Director for AARP of Georgia. Mitchell will be speaking at the symposium about navigating the road map for the future, having a financial plan and how Medicare and other government programs can help us as we age.

With a professional career spanning leadership roles in the aging field for over thirty years, Mitchell has plenty of experience and knowledge to share. After receiving his Masters Degree of Social Work from Western Michigan University, he served in leadership positions in the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Special Unit on Aging, where he administered the Older Americans Act Programs for eight years. Mitchell then joined the AARP where he spent twenty years of his career. He retired in 2010 as the Georgia State Director. Throughout his time at AARP, Mitchell was involved in advocacy campaigns, information and education programs, community service activities and managing volunteer programs.

Mr. Mitchell is currently a full time faculty member at Gainesville State College where he teaches Gerontology, Social Work and Human Service Delivery and Administration classes.

Mitchell is a strong supporter of the concept of active aging, which is the process of optimizing opportunities or health, social engagement, and security in order to enhance the quality of life as people age, a central theme at Park Springs. We are excited to have Ken Mitchell’s expertise at our complimentary symposium in the Clubhouse Community Room.
