This is a terrific opportunity to learn about the most pressing issues facing California’s long-term services and supports (LTSS) system, with related legislative, budgetary, and programmatic updates. Attendees will hear from and engage with California’s leading experts and policy leaders to better understand California’s policy landscape through an equity lens and consider where they can play a role. This event is the first of our Forum panels, Amplifying all Voices in Aging, every Wednesday in October. We hope to see you there!
