National Hispanic Council on Aging Urges Healthcare Reform and Geriatrics Training for Health Professionals as Older Americans Reach 20% of Population
Date:9/30/2009

Invited speakers include Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee; Tina Tchen, Director, White House Office of Public Engagement, HHS; Rep. Roybal-Allard (D-CA); Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ); Del.
