The White House has held a Conference on Aging each decade since the 1960s to identify and advance actions to improve the quality of life of older Americans. The 2015 White House Conference on Aging was an opportunity to look ahead to the issues that will help shape the landscape for older Americans for the next decade.
The 2015 White House Conference on Aging was built on a year-long effort to listen, learn, and share with older adults, families, caregivers, advocates, community leaders, and experts in the aging field. The Conference aimed to embrace the transformative demographic shift occurring in the United States and recognize the possibilities of healthy aging.
