Aging Policy Briefing

Registration Now Open!

The first year of the Trump Administration and the 115th Congress has seen unprecedented changes, challenges and threats to federal health care and aging programs, including Medicaid, Medicare and the Older Americans Act, which serve older adults in every community. However, tumultuous times have paved the way for advocates and allies to rally around critical programs and services and to educate national lawmakers about the importance of these programs.
It is now more important than ever that aging advocates learn about breaking aging policy news from national experts,   stay informed on how policy changes under consideration on Capitol Hill and within federal agencies will affect health care and aging programs locally, and advocate for older adults in communities across the country. 
You really can’t afford to miss the 2018 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! 
On Wednesday, April 18 and Thursday, April 19, 2018, n4a will bring together stakeholders from across the country, key Administration officials, Members of Congress and their staff, and other experts to:
Hear details about ongoing 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.
Wednesday, April 18: Wednesday morning will be an intensive pre-conference hosted by the Aging and Disability Business Institute focused on developing productive partnerships with Health Care, including detailing what agencies need to know about quality assurance and Medicare payment. Wednesday afternoon, the Aging Policy Briefing formally begins. Attendees will dive into health care and aging policy analysis and updates from the Trump Administration and Capitol Hill.
Thursday, April 19: Attendees will convene bright and early to continue the policy briefing before deploying to Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon for meetings with Representatives and Senators. Please note that advocates are responsible for setting up visits with their Members of Congress.
