The Latino Center on Aging was founded in 1991 to enhance the living conditions of Hispanic elderly through education and advocacy. In South Florida the LCA has developed an intense activity during the past four years by organizing a South Florida Advisory Board, a South Florida Hispanic Coalition for Aging and a monthly radio segment on La Nueva 88.3 FM. In addition, the LCA has organized and implemented five conferences on Latinos and Alzheimer’s in Spanish.
