Every year the Latino Golden Age Conference attracts more than 250 Latino older adults. The purpose of the conference is to provide this audience with the opportunity to receive valuable information, address social isolation, food insecurity and other health and well-being issues, while at the same time celebrating who they are as Latino older adults in Philadelphia.
