Free Virtual Event: Register Now

Our nation has a new Administration, a new Congress, and an ongoing health and economic crisis. Now is the time for bold policy action.

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the systemic disparities that leave too many Americans behind without the resources to age with dignity. 2021 offers a unique opportunity to address these inequities through public policy.

For more than 70 years, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) has been the country’s leading voice for older adults and the organizations that serve them. NCOA believes aging well is something every American deserves—regardless of gender, color, sexuality, income, or zip code.

Join us as we convene the nation’s top policy leaders for straight talk about what needs to change to ensure that every American can age with health and financial security.

Speakers:

  • Ramsey Alwin, President & CEO, NCOA
    Ramsey Alwin is a thought leader and policy advocate who has challenged outdated beliefs and sparked new solutions to address financial resilience as we age.
  • Sen. Bob Casey, Invited, United States Senator (D-PA)
    Sen. Casey serves on four committees, including the Senate Finance Committee and Senate HELP Committee. He is also Chairman of the Senate Special Committee on Aging.
  • Sen. Tim Scott, Invited, United States Senator (R-SC)
    Sen. Scott serves on four committees, including the Senate Finance Committee and Senate HELP Committee. He is also the highest ranking Republican member of the Senate Special Committee on Aging.
  • Rep. Debbie Dingell, Invited, U.S. Congresswoman (D-MI)
    Rep. Dingell serves on two committees, including the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and its Subcommittee on Health. She also serves as Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.
