The 2018 elections will result in major priority and policy shifts in Washington when the 116th Congress convenes in January. Join n4a March 5-6 for the 25th anniversary of its Aging Policy Briefing and participate in comprehensive discussions about what these changes mean for aging and health care policy advocates. It is critically important that the Aging Network be ready to work with the new Congress as Democrats assume control of the House of Representatives and Republicans expand their majority in the Senate—and n4a’s Aging Policy Briefing is an opportunity to hone your advocacy skills, learn about recent developments in aging and health policy and engage your Members and their staff early in the new Congress.
Learn the latest policy information, gain new insights from national experts and discuss advocacy strategy on a range of programs critical to your agency and those you serve. Policy issues discussed will include federal health care and aging programs, including Medicaid, Medicare and the Older Americans Act, as well as related aging priorities like transportation, caregiving, elder justice and more. We will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Aging Network’s only annual policy event at a reception on Capitol Hill!
