Aging Service Advocates Available for Comment
President Jimmy Carter's 1980 designation, what was once called Senior Citizens Month, is now called "Older Americans Month," and has become a tradition in the United State of America. Older Americans Month is a time to recognize the contributions of past and current older citizens to our country, state, and city.
Experts are available for comment: Council of Senior Citizens Executive Director Igal Jellinek, and Director of Public Policy Bobbie Sackman are available if media representatives are seeking to speak with an expert regarding the issue of aging services.
The Council of Senior Centers and Services (CSCS) promotes the quality of life, independent living, productivity, and dignity of mature older adults principally in New York City. CSCS champions elder rights. For more information visit the CSCS web site at cscs-ny.org.
