May is Older Americans Month
May is a month of fresh beginnings. Perennials bloom once again, blazing a trail of bright color. May is also when we celebrate Older American’s Month (OAM), acknowledging the perennial contributions of older adults to our nation.
The 2016 OAM theme is Blaze a Trail. Please use this opportunity to raise awareness about important issues facing older adults. Conside how you may highlight the ways that older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities.
Be a trailblazer! Join us in promoting activities, inclusion, and wellness for older Americans in your community.
