New Paper Spotlights Importance of Aging Network in Health Care

Building off of a November 2014 symposium, the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) recently released a full report of their findings on the transformative initiatives underway in the Aging Network and the importance of the Network to achieving better health care outcomes and stabilized costs.

The symposium, commissioned by NASI and the Claude Pepper Center at Florida State University, with support from n4a, included a broad cross-section of experts including Assistant Secretary on Aging Kathy Greenlee, a dozen n4a Board members and CEO Sandy Markwood, academics, Capitol Hill staff, state officials and other thought leaders.

“We are so pleased that NASI and the Claude Pepper Center undertook this work help spread the word about the critical role the Aging Network must play if we are to truly drive down health costs and drive up quality of life for older adults,” said Markwood. 

As n4a works with NASI to help distribute the report to federal policymakers, we urge our members to consider using it to educate local or state policymakers, academics and other key stakeholders in the aging or health care world.
