Conference Highlights 2015
Grantmakers In Aging 2015 Annual Conference
The 2015 conference, Soaring into the Future: Seeking New Horizons in Aging and Philanthropy, brought together experts and stakeholders with innovative approaches to delivering on this agenda.
We couldn’t have had a more fitting backdrop than our nation’s capital as we marked the 80th anniversary of the creation of Social Security, and the 50th anniversary of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act. In a diverse array of sessions, we explored the best approaches to keeping older adults independent and living in their own homes and communities, how to become more effective advocates, how to better use technology to serve older adults—and we even danced! There was much more, of course, in the sessions, and in valuable time set aside for networking.
