program tidbits


SAGEVets welcomes Ashton Stewart on 3/30

Ashton Stewart, SAGEVets Program Coordinator at SAGE in NYC, will meet with members of our local veterans group members on March 30, 5:30 pm in the SAGE Upstate Center. Ashton will  provide a brief history of SAGEVets, a New York State program that is based on unique needs of elder LGBT veterans who served when the military enforced strict anti-LGBT policies.  He will also discuss how SAGEVets helped usher in the Restoration of Honor Act, New York State legislation that will enable LGBT veterans who received a less-than-honorable discharge due to their sexual orientation or gender identity to access all the services, benefits, and supports offered at the State Level.   The presentation will conclude with an overview of services and referrals that SAGEVets offers to ensure elder LGBT veterans age with dignity and the honor. Pictures  are from August 2018 when Ashton met with SAGEVets in the Center. This meeting will be held at a special time; SAGEVets usually meets on the 3rd Thursday in the SAGE Upstate Center, at 5:30.

Diabetes Prevention Program starts Thursday 4/2, 4:30

SAGE will offer a series targeting people with prediabetes

It's an evidence-based prevention program developed by the CDC with a 70% success rate among people over age 60. Take a simple risk test here to see if you are at risk for prediabetes. 

The program will consist of weekly info sessions with food/snacks for the first half. During the second half, classes will be monthly with a meal. The course builds on the notion of making lifestyle changes with the support of a group of others doing the same.

Do you have a special talent? 

We're looking for folks who want to show off their talents -- what can you do? Singers, dancers, poets, authors, plate spinners, musicians, and  people with any talent they'd like to share are welcome (well, maybe not fire breathing or snake charming). It's a talent show at the May potluck -- 5 minute slots will be given to those who wish to share their gifts with their SAGE friends. If you are up for it, please contact Leslie at 315-478-1923 or email here
