This State Society on Aging of New York sponsored program focuses on the needs of New York City’s older adults and families. It will address issues concerning New York City’s ethnically and linguistically diverse older adults and provide information on programs and services that support the health and well-being of older New York City residents to enable aging in place in advanced age. The State Society on Aging of New York invites members and non-members, including health and human service professionals across disciplines, students with an interest in gerontology and aging issues, policy makers, administrators, and all individuals interested in aging issues to join us.
