Policy Steering Committee

The Policy Steering Committee at HIGN focuses on issues at the federal, state and local level that impact the quality of life and health of older adults. This committee focuses on long-term services and supports, which include home and community-based services, assisted-living, and nursing homes. We advocate for evidence-based health care policies that benefit older adults and promote health equity.
