Diana Silvey, Winter Park Health Foundation Program Director for Older Adults, was invited to participate in one of a series of regional forums set by The White House Conference on Aging to engage with older Americans, their families, caregivers, leaders in the aging field, and others on the key issues affecting older Americans.
The forums are designed to help provide input and ideas for the 2015 White House Conference on Aging, which will be held in Washington, D.C. later this year. They are being co-sponsored with AARP and co-planned with the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations, a coalition of more than 70 of the nation’s leading organizations serving older Americans. Participation is by invitation only. Ms. Silvey participated in the Tampa forum on February 19. The Tampa event is the first of five forums to be held in cities across the nation.
