Older Americans Month 2017 - "Age Out Loud"

Older adults are a vital part of our society. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. The theme of the 2017 celebration is "Age Out Loud," an effort to amplify the many voices of older Americans and raise awareness of vital aging issues across the country.
