Join Amy for her presentation at our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Panel Discussion: The Power of Storytelling in Advocating for Change in Caregiving
Saturday 10 a.m.
Storytelling takes us (the reader, the listener, the viewer) on your journey. Effective storytelling can allow a powerful passing through your joy, your pain, your grace and your personal transformation. Your story creates a connection to what you have learned and allows a deeper understanding into why your experience needs to be important to all of us. Developing our individual storytelling skills as caregivers is critically important in our policy and advocacy transformation efforts because our pictures and stories have power beyond anything else.
