At Eli Lilly and Company, we work every day to make life better for people around the world. As a caregiver, you work every day to make life better for your loved ones. And we want to help you along that caregiving journey.

That’s why we’re proud to sponsor the First Annual National Caregiving Conference, where you’ll have a chance to visit the Lilly for Better Health® booth, learn about caregiving support resources from Lilly for Better Health, and take part in an eye-opening interactive activity (more on that below).

“In the past, you’d go to the doctor, the doctor would give you instructions, and you’d go home and try to follow them. There wasn’t much group support,” says Pauline Coderre, a Strategy Consultant for Lilly’s US Medical Health Education division.

A veteran of nearly 30 years in diverse health care settings, she is energized and inspired by what she sees as a growing caregiving community.

“Now, we have Caregiving.com – an extremely valuable resource in connecting caregivers with each other and sharing what people are going though as caregivers,” says Pauline.

If you’re attending the National Caregiving Conference in Chicago on December 2 and 3, be sure to stop by the Lilly for Better Health booth. Pauline will be joined by other Lilly team members, including Leigh Anne Naas, a Community Manager for the Clinical Innovation division and a veteran of 20 years in various health care settings.

“We’re really excited that the Caregiving.com group is creating this conference, the first of its kind, and honored that Lilly has been invited to join the conference,” says Leigh Anne.

So if you’re going to the conference, what can you expect to find at the Lilly for Better Health booth? In addition to some caregiving support resources you can take home, an interactive map will help you express what’s going on in your life as a caregiver.

“We’ll take the information and use it to inform our understanding of what this group finds valuable,” says Leigh Anne. “Our primary purpose is to listen, to learn, and to make connections. Once we make the connections, we’d love the conversation to keep going.”

And it will – both at the conference and on this blog. This is the first of a 10-part blog series called Caring Conversations that will provide caregivers with inspiration, resources, and useful tips.

We hope to see you at the conference, and stay tuned for the next Caring Conversations post!
