The first 2015 White House Conference on Aging regional forum is set for this Thursday at 8:30 a.m. ET. In-person event attendance is by invitation only, but older Americans, caregivers, advocates, community leaders and others can watch online at no cost.
“The Tampa Regional Forum is an opportunity to hear directly from you on key issues such as ensuring retirement security, promoting healthy aging, providing long-term services and supports, and protecting older Americans from financial exploitation, abuse and neglect,” conference organizations said in an announcement.
Those wishing to watch the webcast should visit www.hhs.gov/live-3 to view the live stream beginning at 8:30 a.m. Individuals, organizations, coalitions and others can submit comments, share stories and provide thoughts about the issues on the conference’s website. The link also contains the meeting’s agenda and a discussion guide.
The Tampa event is the first of five regional forums planned by the White House Conference on Aging. Other forums are planned for Phoenix (March 31), Seattle (April 9), Cleveland (April 27) and Boston (May 28). Click here for more information.
