The conference, with more than 3,000 attendees, is recognized as a showcase for programs and projects that can be replicated, a forum for policy discussion and advocacy, and a prime source of information on new research findings in aging.
"We are thrilled to be honored with this award, as the reputation of GLEH, its vision and its programs continue to advance elderly LGBT equality," said Eric Harrison, Executive Director.
