We Stand With Seniors

29062686_1577606855650795_2388268680073969664_nIn March, The SCAN Foundation launched We Stand With Seniors, a public awareness and education campaign – communicating directly to the candidates for California governor – and focused on the specific challenges older adults and families face in accessing high-quality, affordable health care and supportive services in California. In the months leading up to the election, the campaign – co-funded with West Health – will convene older adults, advocates, and policymakers for educational forums, periodic surveys on how well the gubernatorial candidates are addressing the issues, and more.
