Maximum Impact! Finding Intersections to Make Older Lives Better

March 24, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging.

With the most diverse aging generation that the U.S. has ever seen comes a challenge to all of us who are working to improve the lives of older adults. Using a highly interactive format with roundtables, presentations and small group work, SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging brings together a group of experts from national organizations that make up one of ACL/AoA’s technical assistance resource centers to discuss their challenges and victories in multicultural aging policy advocacy and services provision. The audience will interact with the experts to discuss what is most needed now and what organizations could be doing in the future.
