Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary for Aging at the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, will speak to senior living executives on Tuesday, March 6 at the ALFA Advocacy Fly-in in Washington, DC.
Open only to ALFA members, the ALFA Advocacy Fly-In brings together senior living advocates from across the country to meet with their legislators and advocate for issues important to senior living providers and the residents they serve. Day one of the two day event consists of a training session, which prepares advocates for their meetings and educates participants on federal politics and policy.
Presenters at the training event include Jim Ellis, Senior Consultant of PRIsm Information Network, who will give insight on the upcoming 2012 elections, Lauren Harris-Kojetin, National Center for Health Statistics, who will discuss the findings of the 2010 National Survey of Residential Care Communities, and Assistant Secretary Kathy Greenlee, who will share her unique perspective from inside the Administration on Aging.
Assistant Secretary Greenlee was confirmed in June 2009 and was designated as the Administrator of the CLASS Act in 2011. She has emphasized the importance of building partnerships with federal, state, tribal, community and private organizations and is committed to allowing seniors to live in the assisted living community as they age.
