MIAMI – The Miami-Dade County Elder Affairs Advisory Board (EAAB), under the Office of Community Advocacy, will hold its monthly meeting at 10 a.m., on Thursday, Oct. 31 at the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW 1st Street, Miami Florida, 33128, CITT Conference room, tenth floor.
This month’s meeting will include presentations from Joe Rasco, Miami-Dade County Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, and from Karen Iglesias, Florida Department of Health’s Human Services Supervisor.
All EAAB meetings are open to the public, and residents are encouraged to attend and participate to learn more about the work and mission of the board. The Board was established by an ordinance sponsored by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa and approved unanimously by the Board of County Commissioners. The Board’s mission is to expand the support for seniors in Miami-Dade County, while allowing them to play a more active role in the local government by crafting strategies to better meet their needs.
The Elder Affairs Advisory Board serves in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners, to distinguish the needs of the elderly community, which makes up 16 percent of the County’s population.
