We’re going bold in anticipation of our Second Annual National Caregiving Conference!

The conference steering committee members have created videos about our conference and our bold moments. This year’s conference theme is our Bold Moments: Before, During, After. April Koontz shares her perspective on our conference and her bold moment.



About April
April Koontz is a clinical social worker with an entrepreneurial spirit who happens to have a passion for healthcare technology, transforming multifaceted ideas into written and graphical form, songwriting and, most importantly, advocating for family caregivers. She spent the first 15 years of her career in direct clinical practice as an individual, couples and family therapist and then as a clinical supervisor at the nation’s largest behavioral health insurance company. For the last 10 years she’s worked in the healthcare IT field. April is the founder of Daughters Unite, a social networking site with a mission to connect women who are currently walking the caregiving journey to those who’ve already walked it to those whose journey awaits them. She’s also the Chief Operating Officer of ConfidentHealth, a health IT company that helps organizations drive better care outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. She was the primary caregiver of her younger brother who suffered from severe bipolar illness and polysubstance addiction and died of an unintentional overdose in 2010 and currently cares for her aunt who has a multitude of chronic medical conditions.

We are so very grateful for the support of the following sponsors of our National Caregiving Conference:
