Mindfulness inclusion in the Golden Age of Latina Women
Older Latinas play an essential role in our culture, from reminding us of our values and keeping our traditions alive through music, cuisines, and history, yet are often forgotten when policies and programs are developed. This conversation will address older adults’ state and the importance of healthcare, retirement, and other programs that reduce the hardship that many face. It will also highlight the leading role our elders have taken around COVID-19 to take care of their families and communities.Register for this Event
