ILCFR 2019 Conference
Intergenerational Relationships: Building Bridges for Diverse Families
Friday, April 12, 2019
Eastern Illinois University

Charleston, IL 61920
“The theme for this years annual conference is one which impacts every family of every demographic: Intergenerational Relationships. Nationally and abroad, scholars, practitioners, educators, and family advocates continue to urge for greater understanding and support of a strong intergenerational society. This formidable task necessitates reciprocity among every individual in society. The old and the young must learn from one another, share knowledge, experience, all while meeting the needs of every member of the family. As the United States continues to age as a society, changes in family structures and living arrangements are increasingly influencing Intergenerational Relationships. By building bridges that span across all diverse families, we can recognize the essential contribution each person brings to the table and its impact on the well-being of the family, community, and society as a whole.”
