Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez to announce Mayor's Challenge for an Age-Friendly Miami-Dade

(MIAMI, FL) – Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, in partnership with the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative, will announce the launch of the Mayor’s Age-Friendly Challenge, encouraging business, civic and elected leaders to take a pledge to help make our community more age-friendly.

Mayor Gimenez will welcome attendees to the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Summit on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 9:30 a.m., at the University of Miami Newman Alumni Center in Coral Gables. Miami-Dade County joins several non-profit agencies, including the Alliance for Aging, AARP Florida, Health Foundation of South Florida, United Way of Miami-Dade and Urban Health Partnerships, in forming the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative, a collaborative effort to help foster a physical and social environment for older adults to stay active and healthy.

The Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Summit will encourage all sectors of our community to rethink aging and consider how best to serve and benefit from this growing population. To register for the Summit or to learn more about the Age-Friendly Initiative, visit the Age-Friendly Initiative.

“Miami-Dade County is committed to continuing to provide excellent services for our older adult population. Our seniors are our ‘honored citizens’ and we are working to ensure that we address critical areas that are vital for the well-being and dignity of older adults in neighborhoods across the County,” said Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez.
