The decennial White House Conference on Aging will be held in Washington Monday, July 13, and is being live-streamed over the Internet.
The White House conference has been held each decade since the 1960s to identify and advance actions to improve the quality of life of older Americans. The 2015 White House Conference on Aging is an opportunity to look ahead to the issues that will help shape the landscape for older Americans for the next decade.
A series of regional conferences have been held around the country in recent months to generate input and feedback from Americans about how to shape the aging policy landscape, leading up the White House event next week. The July 13, 2015 White House Conference on Aging marks the 50th anniversary of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act, as well as the 80th anniversary of Social Security.
