Health and Aging: The White House Conference on Aging to be Held July 13, 2015
The 2015 White House Conference on Aging will be held July 13, 2015. Older Americans all over the country are gearing up for this informative, once in a decade event. The conference dates back to 1961, when Dwight D. Eisenhower was in office. Did you know that according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, more than 37 million Americans receive medications through Medicare, allowing them to save on out-of-pocket expenses? This would not have been possible without the White House Conference on Aging and older Americans, everywhere, letting their voice be heard.
The conference will be live streamed and the White House is urging everyone to watch. This is your opportunity to let your voice be heard and weigh in on health and aging issues personally affecting you. There are many ways to get involved, including hosting a watch party on the day of the event or participating in Q&A with the experts.
