Aging in America

There is no place like New Orleans. Located along the Mississippi River in Louisiana, the city-parish is known for beignets, the French Quarter, Creole architecture, and this year, the Aging in America Conference.

The WDACS’ Aging and Adult Services team joined the American Society on Aging to discuss critical and emergent topics facing the field of aging, as well as cutting-edge programs, research, policy and advocacy efforts in America.

The country’s foremost aging experts and leaders shared best practices and provided insight on innovative solutions for aging well in the United States. WDACS’ Aging and Adult Services team hosted workshops on effective ways to raise and use funds for aging programs and services, primarily focusing on the Community Service Resource Corporation, a nonprofit corporation created by WDACS to raise funds for special projects such as L.A. Found, which enhance the lives of older adults and dependent adults in Los Angeles County.

The annual Aging in America Conference hosts on average over 3,000 attendees from across the nation and connects them with the leading experts in the field of aging.
