“Eight national aging-focused organizations have formed an unprecedented partnership to create a better public understanding of older adults’ needs and contributions to society – and to use communications and outreach to drive a more informed conversation about aging and its implications for our communities.”
“FrameWorks is the research partner for the Reframing Aging Project, an initiative of the Leaders of Aging Organizations (AARP, the American Federation for Aging Research, the American Geriatrics Society, the American Society on Aging, the Gerontological Society of America, Grantmakers in Aging, the National Council on Aging, and the National Hispanic Council on Aging.) Together they represent and have direct access to millions of older adults and thousands of individuals working in aging-related professions.”
