Older adults talking

Statement from California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly on Governor Newsom’s Executive Order on the Master Plan for Aging

“I want to thank Governor Newsom for his leadership and for making the well-being of older Californians a priority for the state. The Executive Order to develop a Master Plan for Aging is an important first step towards building a future where all Californians, regardless of race, economic status or level of support, can grow old safely, with dignity and independence. Today, we begin the process of developing this Plan. In the weeks and months ahead, we will engage with our community as a whole, to learn and understand what it will take to build an age-friendly California where older Californians can flourish.”
