Today at the White House Conference on Aging Regional Forum in Boston, Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell announced that the 2015 White House Conference on Aging will be held on July 13.
The July event will continue our year-long effort to listen, learn, and share with older adults, their families, caregivers, advocates, community leaders, and experts in the aging field on how to best address the changing landscape of aging in the coming decade. The 2015 Conference aims to embrace the transformative demographic shift occurring in the United States to recognize the possibilities of aging.
The Conference will aim to connect generations through the unique experiences and expertise of each generation and harness the creativity and spirit of innovation that has defined Americans from generation to generation throughout our country’s history.
We urge Americans of all ages to:
We want people of all ages across the country to participate in this important day because the 2015 White House Conference on Aging isn't just about older adults; it’s also about the future of our country and how to ensure that all of us, across all generations, enjoy not only longer, but better lives. We look forward to your participation.
