New York State to Provide Recommendations to the

2015 White House Conference on Aging


Aging-NY (3/4/3015) - The White House Conference on Aging is an event held once a decade and is dedicated to identifying and advancing actions to improve the quality of life for older Americans.

This year, the White House Conference on Aging (#WHCoA) is looking for national feedback, which is why the New York State Office for the Aging, the Association on Aging in NY and AARP NY have partnered to seek input from our state by way of a short, open-ended survey on each of the four #WHCoA themes.

The White House Conference on Aging themes are: Retirement Security, Healthy Aging, Long Term Services and Supports and Elder Justice.

Share the opportunity to provide input by downloading (click here) and printing a flyer that contains the website link (this web page) to the survey. If language assistance is required to provide input to the survey, please call 1-800-342-9871 and request a free translator.

New York's Survey

Below are links to background and guiding questions to help prompt answers followed by a link to an open-ended, single question survey that asks for your recommendation(s) on that subject.

A Bit of History


In 1950, President Truman initiated the first National Conference on Aging. The first White House Conference on Aging was in 1961 during the Kennedy administration. In both cases the conferences have generated ideas and momentum that have prompted the establishment of new initiatives and key improvement in many of the programs that represent American's commitment to older Americans including: Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and the Older Americans Act.
