Representatives from Northeast Kansas Area Agency on Aging  joined advocates from across the state for Older Kansans Day at the Capitol on February 11, 2020.

The  event, sponsored by the North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging, brought together members of the State Legislature, Area Agencies on Aging, advocates for seniors, and the Kansas Association of  Area Agencies on Aging and Disabilities (k4ad) to raise awareness and talk with leaders about the important services provided to seniors, individuals living with disabilities, and caregivers. Last year, more than 70 Kansans participated in Older Kansans Day at the Statehouse, attended legislative hearings, and visited with legislators throughout the day.
