The 2015 White House Conference on Aging took place on July 13, 2015. The July event built on a year of activities that included five successful regional forums in Tampa, Phoenix, Seattle, Cleveland, and Boston; a series of webinars; and more than 100 high-level topical forums, listening sessions, meetings, speaking engagements and other events held across the country and in Washington, D.C. Throughout the year, the White House Conference on Aging also posted blogs describing the activities surrounding the Conference and developed policy briefs on the emerging themes for the conference and invited public comment and input.

As 2015 comes to an end, it is time for us to reflect on the events of the last year and to look toward the work still ahead of us. We are pleased to share the final report for the 2015 White House Conference on Aging that summarizes the work of this eventful year as well as the feedback we have received in the course of carrying it out.
In 2015, the White House Conference on Aging hosted a series of regional forums to engage with older Americans, their families, caregivers, leaders in the aging field, and others on the key issues affecting older Americans. The forums were designed to help provide input and ideas for the 2015 White House Conference on Aging, which was held at the White House on July 13, 2015. The forums were co-sponsored with AARP and co-planned with the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations, a coalition of more than 70 of the nation’s leading organizations serving older Americans. Recordings of the webcast from each forum are available below.
