MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
The Los Angeles Aging Advocacy Coalition’s Annual Summit on Aging is a one-day conference exploring policies that impact older adults and caregivers. Every year, the Summit brings together new and experienced movers and shakers in the aging world to inform one another on current issues, educate legislators and stakeholders on the future of aging, and engage attendees to be the voice for older adults and their caregivers.
The theme of this year’s conference will be:
Aging Policy: From Defense to Offense
The conference will focus on the role of media, funders, and individuals in shaping aging policy. A deep dive will be taken into the current landscape of healthcare, housing and immigration. Attendees will gain insights into shaping aging policy that moves these sectors from defense to offense, in order to prepare for an increasingly aging population.
