Keeping the Promise: Strengthening the Safety Net for Seniors
The 5th Annual Los Angeles Aging Advocacy Coalition (LAAAC) Aging Summit convenes senior services organizations, federal, state, and local policy-makers, advocates, key stakeholders, and community leaders from the Los Angeles area to address key program and policy issues affecting California’s older adults. By participating in the Summit, you will gain a greater understanding of the impact of current and emerging policies on the lives of seniors, and learn what action you can take to help preserve essential senior programs and services.
The Summit will feature dynamic speakers including Kevin Prindiville, Executive Director, National Senior Citizens Law Center, Sandra K. Fitzpatrick, MA, Executive Director, California Commission on Aging and advocate Robert Egger, President, LA Kitchen.
Panel discussions designed to stimulate a vibrant dialogue about pertinent issues and "how-to" best promote change will round out the day. The Future of Healthcare in Los Angeles: The Coordinated Care Initiative, moderated by Amber Cutler of the National Senior Citizens Law Center, will provide perspectives from major health plans, as well as state and local agencies at the center of the implementation of healthcare reform in Los Angeles. Mobilizing Media for Change, moderated by Victoria Ballesteros of The SCAN Foundation, will include experts in media sharing the strategies that work, and the "how-to's" of getting your issues picked up by reporters. The inaugural LAAAC Champion Award will be presented by Val Zavala of KCET and a Resource Center will provide attendees with vital information and access to resources that will enhance their work on behalf of older adults.
