Congratulations, Florencia!

For 51 years, NHCOA has served as the nation’s premier organization focused on improving the lives of Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers. This year is no different! Each year, NHCOA takes time to honor and celebrate trailblazers in the field of aging.

Our Virtual Awards Ceremony creates a safe space for us to celebrate our shared commitment to Hispanic families and aging issues and to acknowledge the trailblazers who are paving the way in these areas. This event is NHCOA’s largest fundraising event of the year.

Join us as we recognize leaders in the field of aging who share our commitment to Hispanic older adults.
