NORMAN — Karyne Jones, president and CEO of the National Caucus and Center on Black Aged Inc. (NCBA), will present “The Senior Safety Net in Jeopardy.”
It is the final installment in the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Spring Lecture Series from noon to 1 p.m. May 17 at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City.
In this lecture, Jones will focus on the disparities African Americans and other minorities face in terms of treatment, access and affordability.
She will discuss the impact of the Affordable Care Act on seniors, particularly for minority seniors and the economic impact they will face if changes are not addressed now. NCBA — based in Washington, D.C. — is one of the largest minority-focused organizations in the United States.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
