Did you know that July was a special month for gerontologists, geriatricians, and all those whose passions includes working with older adults? On July 13, 2015, President Obama hosted the White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA), a once a decade event that focuses on the issues facing Americans as they age. This year's WHCOA addressed a wide array of issues related to retirement planning, caring for older loved ones, and improving quality of life for older adults. While WHCOA produced numerous initiatives, mandates and resources, I will highlight a few that are specifically related to clinicians working with older adults. A full briefing from the WHCOA can be found on the White House Briefing Room website (https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/07/13/fact-sheet-white-house-conference-aging).
