On Monday, March 23, LSA President and CEO Charlotte Haberaecker took part in a White House Conference on Aging listening session focused on Healthy Aging. The meeting was hosted by Julian Castro, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as several key officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Assistant Secretary for Aging/Administrator of the Administration for Community Living Kathy Greenlee, and White House Conference on Aging Executive Director Nora Super.
This was a fantastic opportunity to share the great work LSA members are doing to keep older adults healthy and independent in their communities, and also served as important preparation for the upcoming White House Conference on Aging. Two–thirds of our members, nearly 200 health and human services organizations, provide services to seniors across the country, including rehabilitation, community programs, memory care, assisted living, and post-acute care. LSA is honored to represent these programs and how they contribute to their communities – thank you to all who have heard the call to work in senior services and programs for healthy aging, for all you do.
