Aging Well for All: 2021 Public Policy Priorities for Older Adults
Recorded On: 03/18/2021
Our nation has a new Administration, a new Congress, and an ongoing health and economic crisis. Now is the time for bold policy action.
The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the systemic disparities that leave too many Americans behind without the resources to age with dignity. 2021 offers a unique opportunity to address these inequities through public policy.
For more than 70 years, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) has been the country's leading voice for older adults and the organizations that serve them. NCOA believes aging well is something every American deserves—regardless of gender, color, sexuality, income, or zip code.
Join us as we convene the nation’s top policy leaders for straight talk about what needs to change to ensure that every American can age with health and financial security.
