ASA Conference Will Include Forum on Building Direct-Care Workforce

March 1, 2012

The American Society on Aging‘s (ASA) annual conference in Washington, DC, will feature a “National Forum on Building a Workforce to Care for an Aging Society.”

The forum will be held on March 30 from 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The program is based on the research and predictions of experts who contributed articles to the Winter 2010-11 issue of ASA’s journal, Generations. The forum will delve deeply into the policy implications, education and practice levels needed to build a workforce to care for America’s aging population.

PHI President Steven Dawson, who contributed a journal article with co-authors Nancy E. Lundebjerg and Caitlin W. Connolly of the Eldercare Workforce Alliance, is a keynote speaker.

PHI National Policy Director Steve Edelstein will present on an article contributed by Dorie Seavey, PHI national policy research director.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. For more information, visit the ASA website.
