"The lack of understanding and support of aging programs is puzzling at best, deeply frustrating at worst," said John Feather, CEO of GIA (Grantmakers In Aging)​. "We are in a moment of historic change, a demographic shift that is both profound and permanent. Do Americans just not get it? Do they not care?" #ReFramingAging

Geriatricians--elder care specialists, who dedicate their time to follow up on chronic illness--are among the scarcest group of health care professionals in the United States.
“Professions in ‪#‎geriatrics‬ aren’t very popular. They lack prestige and it’s not as lucrative as other areas in medicine,” said Jonathan Flacker, a professor of geriatric medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta.

Although recent polls show the #AffordableCareAct has decreased the percentage of uninsured #Latinos, evidence still suggests that #Hispanic outreach remains a problem. To help close this gap, NHCOA is teaming up with the Anthem Foundation to add a health literacy component to our Empowerment and Civic Engagement Leadership Training program in Miami, Florida and Dallas, Texas.
