PANEL DISCUSSION: How Women Have Transformed Long-Term Care

April 25, 2013

Experts will talk about the role that women have played in improving the U.S. long-term care system during a May 7 panel discussion in Washington, DC.

Caring Across Generations (CAG) is organizing the discussion.

Panelists will include both consumers and providers of long-term care, who will talk about why long-term care reform disproportionately affects women.

They will also discuss the work that still needs to be done to ensure affordable and accessible long-term care for all Americans.

The discussion will begin at 9:30 am at the Russell Senate Office Building. For more information, email Gabi Huesca at

Following the discussion, CAG will host an afternoon of advocacy on Capitol Hill. Delegates will be given the chance to discuss long-term care issues with policymakers.

For information on how to join these advocacy efforts, send an email to Jasmine Major at
