Earlier this week, she also spoke at the National Forum on Aging, Diversity and Inclusion in Washington, D.C.
“As we’ve continued our journey of listening, learning, and sharing with older adults and their families, we’ve heard time and time again that services for older Americans must be culturally responsive in communities that for too long have often been underserved, under recognized, and underrepresented. This Administration is committed to ensuring those services,” said Super.
