NHCOA Regional Conference: Empowering Communities to Age with Dignity

NHCOA/WDC-May 2017.- Hispanic older adults are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. and will comprise the largest ethnically diverse population in the next 20 years. Given this reason, the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) continues to empower them, their families, and caregivers.

Once again, NHCOA will host its Regional Conferences, where we will reach and engage Latino on caregiving issues. This year’s Conferences will feature training and provide information for community leaders to be advocates to strengthen older adults’ voices and their contributions to our community, our economy, and our culture.

NHCOA’s Regional Conferences will be held at the Miami-Dade College Inter American Campus, Room 3103, 627 SW 27th Ave. Miami, Florida during June 27, 28, and 29 of 2017.

This regional convenings are three-day events that connect older adults, community leaders, and caregivers with local elected officials, providers, and stakeholders to ensure their needs and concerns are voiced in an attentive, receptive and safe environment.

Established in 1979, NHCOA is the largest constituency-based organization representing Hispanic older adults. NHCOA represents a network of 42 community-based groups across the continental U.S., the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. NHCOA also maintains a broader network of 7,000 individuals and reaches 10 million Hispanics each year through its work and that of its affiliates.
