IPA café

IPA café is an online live interactive networking opportunity to allow open discussion between IPA members and future members. This program is designed as a virtual meet-up similar to coffee breaks (or cocktail hours), providing mental health professionals a forum to connect with peers for informal conversations around a single topic. Topics are posed as questions, and no preparation is required to attend the event.

How has your life changed with COVID-19?

This is a free program open to all IPA members and their colleagues interested in sharing their experiences working in mental health care for older adults in a time of COVID-19, social distancing and more.

A personal invitation from Dr. Daisy Acosta, IPA café Organizing Committee:

Dear Friends,

At IPA we have created this e-space with the thought  of "simple talk"  about a subject that interests us while we drink our coffee, tea, or even cocktails!  Our first topic will be "How COVID-19 has changed our lives:  as family - as professionals in different fields - as members of our communities - and more.” There is no need for preparation, it is just a talk utilizing the Zoom video platform. We’ll get to meet each other, share our experiences and learn how others are adapting to this whole new way of living and working.

We encourage you to invite your colleagues and friends to join us and get to know IPA.  Looking forward to seeing you all on 13 August!  Please click the link above to register and check your time zone.
