White House Seeks Comments for the 2015 White House Conference on Aging

The 2015 White House Conference on Aging is asking the public to comment on two new policy briefs: “Long Term Services and Supports” and “Healthy Aging.”

Read the policy briefs on the White House Conference on Aging website.

This is an opportunity to focus attention on the needs and concerns of American Indian and Alaska Native elders and caregivers. Previous White House Conferences on Aging have been catalysts for major programs including Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and the Older Americans Act.

Each policy brief concludes with discussion questions designed to stimulate dialogue.
