You are invited to attend the Alliance for Health Policy’s Congressional Briefing – Aging in America, which is part of their 2018 Opportunities for Progress Signature Series. The Briefing will be held on Friday, December 7th, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.
As shared on their website:
“We are excited to announce that Lance Robertson, MPA, administrator and assistant secretary for aging at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will join our panel for the last 2018 Opportunities for Progress Signature Series event of the year.
Americans are living longer–by 2060 the number of Americans over 65 will double, making up nearly a quarter of the population. While rising life expectancy marks a major achievement for the health care system, policymakers and stakeholders must work to build a health care infrastructure to support longer lives. This briefing is the last event in our 2018 Signature Series and we will explore the unique health and social needs of older adults and how to develop age-friendly communities that give aging Americans convenient access to all of the services they need.”
Sarah Dash, President and CEO of the Alliance for Health Policy, will moderate the session and panelists include:
Tom Cornwell, M.D.
Founder and CEO, Home Centered Care Institute
Lindsay Goldman, LMSW
Director, Healthy Aging, The New York Academy of Medicine
