Join Jay for her panel discussions during our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Session #1

ACT at a National Level!
Friday, 1 p.m. 

This Policy & Advocacy ACT segment will introduce you to diverse organizations that are actively engaged in health policy and advocacy initiatives at a national level. Through an engaging panel discussion they'll share their expertise and perspectives. These are organizations that you could get involved with TODAY so that your caregiving voice is heard. You will learn tips, tricks and channels that can empower your caregiving expertise to drive transformational change.


Session #2

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.
