May is Older Americans Month

05/23/2017 - The White House proclaimed May as Older Americans Month, recognizing the need for older adults to receive "the best health care available." The Administration for Community Living leads the celebration and created the 2017 theme "Age Out Loud." ACL was also instrumental in developing the interagency "2016 Profile of Older Americans."

The Academy is working with ACL and other government agencies to enhance effective wrap-around services that will reduce costs, improve health and promote older adults' independence by utilizing registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition and dietetics technicians, registered and other qualified providers to provide more sophisticated and a broader set of services through existing care channels.
