2008 NATIONAL LONG TERM CARE SYMPOSIUM
The entire nation is on the precipice of change as it elects a new President and casts its votes for representation in the 111th Congress. Healthcare reform continues to be a leading theme in these elections and with it, the issue of long term care and how aging Americans will receive this care is becoming a more frequent topic of discussion. Considering the first wave of 78 million Baby Boomers will begin to retire next
year, igniting a national discussion on long term care now is all the more important.
You are cordially invited to attend and participate in the third annual National Long Term Care Symposium. Please join us along with elected leaders, healthcare advisors from the Presidential campaigns, long term care professionals, industry leaders and advocates in a wide-ranging discussion about the intersection of healthcare reform and long term care.
