"It is important that we work together to eliminate the health disparities that exist for Hispanic elders in this country," said Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee, who will speak during a morning session Oct. 7, on "A Conversation on Healthcare: Our Nation's Priority."

NHCOA is the premier national organization dedicated to understanding the needs and securing the wellbeing of Hispanic older adults and their caregivers, the fastest-growing segment in the U.S. population. For information, visit http://nhcoa.org/.
