GOVERNOR MAKES NEW APPOINTMENTS TO CA COMMISSION ON AGING
Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. on March 29 announced the new appointees to the California Commission on Aging.
The Commission serves as "the principal advocate in the state on behalf of older individuals, including, but not limited to, advisory participation in the consideration of all legislation and regulations made by state and federal departments and agencies relating to programs and services that affect older individuals." As such it is the principal advisory body to the governor, state Legislature, and state, federal and local departments and agencies on issues affecting older individuals.
Among the 12 appointees are representatives of the medical profession, judiciary, academics, healthcare, social services and communication. The later, Stuart Greenbaum, serves as vice president, public relations and brand management for Eskaton, the Northern California-based aging services organization. “Through my participation, I hope to inspire a more positive perspective on aging among the public and elected officials,” Greenbaum said.
