Kicking off the White House Conference on Aging in Tampa

26. February 2015 13:17 by Cecilia Muñoz | 2 Comments

Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, Cecilia Muñoz recently posted the blog below to The White House Blog.  

Last Thursday, I traveled to Tampa, Florida to kick off the first regional forum of the 2015 White House Conference on Aging. This forum brought together a community of older Americans, advocates, caregivers, experts, and local leaders who are committed to working to address the changing landscape of aging.

In panel discussions, speeches, and breakout sessions, participants in Tampa considered important issues such as:

  • How to help older Americans remain healthy and independent as they age
  • How to promote retirement security
  • How to help prevent financial exploitation and other abuse of our most          vulnerable elders

But while Tampa was an important opportunity for dialogue, it was just the beginning of the conversation. We’ll continue this work in Phoenix, Seattle, Cleveland, and Boston in the weeks and months ahead.

Please join the discussion by visiting WhiteHouseConferenceonAging.gov, where you can sign up for regular updates, watch the live webcast on our regional events, and share your comments, thoughts, and ideas through the Get Involved section.

The 2015 White House Conference on Aging aims to highlight the contributions of today’s older adults — and inform tomorrow’s aging policy and programs. We hope it will be a broad-based, national conversation, and we need your input to make that happen. 

Thank you for your interest in commenting on this blog. At this time, we are no longer accepting comments. If you are still interested in sharing your thoughts, please e-mail them to info@whaging.gov

I appreciate Family Caregiving Tele-Town Hall, webinar on Feb. 26, 2015.
It was very insightful, I mean the facts related to the content of the webinar and facts presented by Ms. Nora Super, Executive Director of the 2015 White House Conference on Aging, about steps towards preparation such important Conference. I have just realized its uniqueness, once in a decade. It says a lot.

Caregivers play significant role in helping senior to stay independent.
We appreciate their services: their hard work, commitment!

Thank you,
