    Representatives from the Dane County Department of Human Service Area Agency on Aging will help you to understand how to navigate the Aging Network of services for older adults in Dane County.  This information is vital to understanding how to access services and supports you may need in retirement. The presenters will share a broad overview of the aging services system, the vast array of services available, the entry points for accessing these services, and opportunities for you to stay actively engaged on every level throughout retirement. 

    During the second part of this workshop, the Manager of the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Dane County will present an overview of ADRC services and resources at the beginning, middle, and end of your retirement journey. Your local ADRC is the single-entry point for publicly funded Long Term Care.  Staff at the ADRC are able to explain the functional and financial eligibility for these publicly funded programs.  You will leave with a better understanding of where to start your journey.


    Angela Velasquez is the Division Administrator for Disability & Aging Services for the Department of Human Services of Dane County. Prior to August 2022, she served as the Aging Program Specialist in the Area Agency on Aging of Dane County, with primary responsibility for Older American Act funded programs to include Senior Nutrition, Healthy Aging and Caregiver Support. 



    Sridevi Mohan is the Manager for the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) of Dane County. Before joining the AAA, she worked as an Epidemiologist/Aging lead at Public Health Madison & Dane County. Sridevi's 15+ year career can be split between academia and public health, with a broad background in research, evaluation, aging, community engagement, and health & racial equity. 


    Jennifer Fischer is the Manager of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Dane County. She has held this position since the ADRC opened in 2012.  Prior to working at the ADRC, Jennifer was the Supervisor of the Long-Term Support Unit for Dane County. This unit manages Long Term Care services for older adults and people with physical disabilities in Dane County.

This session will provide a basic path and general knowledge to begin the search, research skills, customary formatting techniques, considerations for the purpose of the search, ways for organization and free research sites. Options for additional education. Links will be provided to family group sheets and ancestral charts.

Her areas of expertise are the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

    We know people have greatly valued our Four Lakes (DeJope) area for centuries, because they built roughly 1,200 effigy (animal/spirit-shaped) and other mounds on the high grounds overlooking the lakes starting about 800 BC. While the vast majority was destroyed through development, our guide will lead us on a two-mile walk where you will see remaining conical, linear, and effigy mounds. You will also learn the fascinating background of the indigenous people who lived, traded, hunted and fished the shores of Lake Mendota going back 12,000 years. By the end, you will know what to look for in finding the indigenous earthworks that we so often overlook in our midst. (Photo by Teri Venker)


    Teri Venker is a volunteer docent and researcher for the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation. She also leads tours of Indian Mounds around the Madison area, which partly stems from her lifelong interest in Native American history and culture. Her career at the UW was in marketing and communications for the UW-Madison’s Wisconsin Union, the UW Colleges and UW-Extension. Teri is a UWRA member.

    This is the second session of a three-part series to get you started on your path to explore your past.  Diane Hart Deci, with a lifelong interest in genealogy, began her research 45 years ago. Her areas of expertise are the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. She has taken multiple genealogical courses through the Wisconsin Historical Society, Georgia Genealogical Society, and the Daughters of the American Revolution. She is a member of several lineage societies. As WS DAR state registrar, she has presented numerous genealogical classes. Diane feels very strongly that our ancestors’ history and the history of the communities we live in affect who we are. Diane is retired from Edgewood College where she was the Blackboard System Administrator.

    Gerrymandering is one of the several ways in which our political system adjusts the rule of “one person, one vote” to serve special interests. The drawing of electoral maps is a complex math problem for which there is no one correct answer — and the arguments over the acceptability of any given answer tend to be heated.

    Fortunately, Jordan Ellenberg, John D. MacArthur Professor of Mathematics at UW, has given much thought to this issue and is willing to give a webinar to help UWRA members think about this problem. He plans to give us an informal introduction to the rules governing the construction of electoral maps and the criteria by which those maps can be judged. The session will allow plenty of time for Q&A; so please plan to ask questions.

    If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please send to Program Coordinator Millard Susman at msusman@wisc.edu by Tuesday, October 25.
