How Does Your Brain Score? Take the Staying Sharp Brain Health Assessment

Statement by AARP CEO William D. Novelli in Response to the Death of Rep. Robert T. Matsui

We deeply regret the passing of Rep. Robert Matsui, a strong and knowledgeable legislator and a great American. Rep. Matsui was a champion for those bypassed by the American dream—the disabled and the victims of poverty, disease, discrimination. Americans age 50+ have lost a great friend, Congress has lost a strong voice and Social Security has lost an invaluable advocate for its fiscal soundness.

We offer our sympathy to his family in their sorrow.
