The nation’s population of older adults is set to grow exponentially, with the number of Americans over 65 expected to increase by 18 million in just the next decade. Florida is at the forefront of this trend. The state is home to the highest proportion of residents over age 65, with 19 percent in comparison to a national average of 13.7 percent. As this population grows, unprecedented stress will be placed on delivery systems and support networks.

Please join us on November 10 in Miami as the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Senior Health and Housing Task Force explores the importance of integrating America’s health care and housing systems. BPC recently released a report, Healthy Aging Begins at Home, to advance policy reforms that would better position communities to support the increasing and diverse health and housing needs of our nation’s older adults.

The forum will feature former Senator and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Mel Martinez and regional experts.
