Every September we recognize Healthy Aging Month as a time to focus national attention on the health and well-being of older adults. In observance of Healthy Aging Month this year, ODPHP and Trust for America’s Health are hosting a free virtual Healthy Aging Symposium this week on September 8 and 9. It’s not too late to register!
If you’re interested in learning about the latest science, best practices, and innovative interventions to improve the health of older adults, you won’t want to miss this free virtual event. The symposium will feature keynote and roundtable speakers and a variety of sessions focused on how social determinants of health impact older adults nationwide. Researchers, state health officers, state aging directors, and policymakers from across the nation will discuss their work to improve the lives of older Americans.
