Aging Policy Briefing



Join us in Washington, DC April 3-4, 2017

Major changes are underway in Washington with a new Administration and Congress in 2017 that will mean significant changes in health care policy on Capitol Hill and in federal agencies. Now more than at any time in recent history, it is critical that aging advocates understand and stay up to date on how policy changes will affect health care and aging programs locally.

Past attendees and participants have overwhelmingly said that the annual n4a Aging Policy Briefing and Capitol Hill Day is an invaluable opportunity to learn about breaking aging policy news from national experts and advocate for older adults in communities across the country. You can’t afford to miss this year’s n4a Aging Policy Briefing and Capitol Hill Day to get the latest on what the seismic shift in the political and policy landscape in Washington means for the older adults and caregivers you serve in your communities. Register today!

In April, n4a will bring together stakeholders from across the country, key Administration officials, Members of Congress and their staff, and other experts to:

  • Hear details on Trump Administration plans for vital federal programs serving older adults;
  • Learn from national experts on breaking aging and health care policy issues in Congress;
  • Meet with your Representatives and Senators in DC; and
  • Explore advocacy best practices and strategies in a changing policy environment. 

Snapshot of the Schedule: 

Monday, April 3: On Monday morning, the Aging and Disability Business Institute will host a pre-conference intensive, CBO Opportunities in Health Care Payment and Delivery Systems, aimed at helping CBOs understand and recognize business opportunities within an evolving health care landscape as CMS moves toward alternative payment methods tied to values and outcomes. Monday afternoon, the Aging Policy Briefing formally begins. Attendees will dive into health care and aging policy analysis and updates from the new Administration and Capitol Hill. n4a may host a Capitol Hill Reception on Monday night for APB attendees and their Members of Congress. 

Tuesday, April 4: Attendees will convene bright and early to continue the policy briefing before advocates deploy to Capitol Hill Tuesday afternoon for meetings with Representatives and Senators. Please note that advocates will be setting up their own visits.
