Meals on Wheels for WNY President and CEO Tara A. Ellis was recently appointed to National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Programs (NANASP)’s Future Task Force, a national committee that will help shape the strategic direction and priorities of NANASP.
This is an important assignment in the wake of the first White House Conference on Aging in nearly a decade, which discussed in detail the four broad issues areas of: Healthy Aging, Long-Term Services and Supports, Elder Justice, and Retirement Security.
This task force will have an opportunity to determine how NANASP specifically will be able to respond to the needs of the community and what projects or plans might be able to lead the charge in shaping that future.
Ellis is also a NANASP board member and is Secretary for Meals on Wheels of NYS. She plays an important role in sharing best practices and developing policies for local and broader use.
