“Video: The White House Conference on Aging” – SeniorPlanet

white house conference on aging

“Every 10 years, the White House convenes a panel of experts, seniors and those who serve them to develop new initiatives for the decade ahead. On Monday, July 13, the event live streamed on whitehouse.gov, and the panel responded to questions tweeted by viewers, as well as to concerns voiced over the past several months during regional events.

“The conference has been held each decade since the 60s, when it resulted in the establishment of Medicare.

“This is the first year in which the White House used social media to encourage all Americans to participate. Key topics included retirement security, healthy aging, long-term services and support, and elder justice. A panel addressed the role of technology in the future of aging.”
