If you can be in Miami on May 7, 2012, make sure you plan to go to the White House LGBT Conference on Aging, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the University of Miami’s Clinical Research Building at 1120 NW 14th Street.
The conference will feature keynote remarks by Kathy Greenlee, the openly lesbian Assistant Secretary on Aging for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Raphael Bostic, the openly gay Assistant Secretary for Policy & Research Development at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“The White House LGBT Conference on Aging will provide advocates, community leaders, and members of the public an opportunity to engage with the Obama Administration on the health, housing, and security needs of aging members of the LGBT community. Participants will receive updates from senior officials from The White House and key agencies and departments, connect with Federal government resources and opportunities through workshop sessions, and provide valuable feedback through the “Open Space” process.”
