White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA)
June 17, 2015
The White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) is an event held by the federal government every ten years to develop recommendations for the President and Congress on issues, policy, and research in the field of aging. The White House is gearing up for the 2015 conference that will take place on July 13.
The Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA) is committed to ensuring that the voice of Minnesotans is included in these federal discussions. To that end, the MBA worked with the Area Agencies on Aging and many other partners to convene listening sessions around the state to gather input from interested individuals.
This compilation of federal-level recommendations is a culmination of the 12 listening sessions that were held at which nearly 500 older adults, family caregivers, providers, advocates and other concerned citizens provided input.
