Below is a message from Equality New Mexico President/CEO, Jacob Candelaria, announcing the launch of Equality New Mexico’s LGBT Aging Roundtable—a new initiative aimed at providing LGBT seniors, as well as their caregivers and service providers, ongoing updates on issues that impact LGBT seniors and information about community based services and programming.
That’s what comes to mind after this morning’s roundtable discussion on LGBT aging issues with Kathy Greenlee–the US Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary on Aging.
We had a room full of community members and service providers, and it’s clear to me that there is a lot of great work going on in New Mexico on issues that impact LGBT seniors–and a lot of work left to do. (You can see pictures from this morning’s roundtable here).
To keep the momentum going, I am pleased to announce the launch of Equality New Mexico’s LGBT Aging Roundtable–a new initiative that will provide you with ongoing updates on issues that matter to LGBT seniors, as well as information about community based senior services and programming.
