Regional meetings for White House Conference on Aging
Providers and various advocates should start making plans now if they want to attend any of the regional forums that precede the White House Conference on Aging. The first is planned for Feb. 19 in Tampa, FL. The forums' aim is to gather input for the 2015 WHCOA, which will take place later this year in Washington.
“These forums allow us the opportunity to listen and learn from older adults and stakeholders as we continue to sharpen the vision of this year's Conference and to directly engage with individuals across the country about these important issues,” said Nora Super, executive director of the WHCOA.
The forums are being co-sponsored with AARP and are co-planned with the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations. LeadingAge is one of the more than 70 organizations serving older Americans that comprise the group.
