Join Sara at her panel discussion at the Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Panel Discussion: Is it possible to have a voice of change around Caregiving? What does it mean to be a Caregiving Advocate at the 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.
