This week, the First Lady addressed the graduating Oberlin College class in Oberlin, Ohio. The College was selected as part of the First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative’s “Near-Peer Mentoring College” Challenge – a challenge to institutes of higher education urging them to share videos on the ways they are helping high school students take charge of their future.

You can watch her inspiring remarks below:

Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell announced that the 2015 White House Conference on Aging will be held on July 13.

The July event will continue the Administration's year-long effort to listen, learn, and share with older adults, their families, caregivers, advocates, community leaders, and experts in the aging field on how to best address the changing landscape of aging in the coming decade. The 2015 Conference aims to embrace the transformative demographic shift occurring in the United States to recognize the possibilities of aging. For more details on the Conference click here.
