Providers of long-term services and supports (LTSS) and leaders at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) are now working together to increase awareness about LTSS careers among underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

Thirty stakeholders, including leaders from LeadingAge member organizations and HBCUs, gathered at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting in Atlanta to begin making plans for implementing the HBCUs-LTSS Careers Initiative. The historic gathering was hosted by LeadingAge and UNCF, a minority education organization.
