“Older Americans Month (OAM), led by the Administration for Community Living, is a time to celebrate older Americans, their stories, and their contributions. The annual observance offers a special opportunity to learn about, support, and recognize our nation’s older citizens.

Get involved by completing the sentence “I age out loud by…” and sharing a selfie with your statement. Find more information here.”
