6th Annual Dr. Suzanne Landis Geriatric Summit

Description

In-person seating is full.
Please join us via live webinar.



The pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health and wellness of older adults and their caregivers. Join with other healthcare providers and aging services providers as we explore how to identify and incorporate what really matters to the older adults in our care. This is a hybrid event, with limited on-site seating at MAHEC and a simultaneous live webinar.

Note for those who opt to attend via live webinar (via Webex): Please ensure that you have reliable internet access on a computer (not phone) that has Webex loaded. This event will have learning sessions all day and include afternoon breakouts, for which virtual attendees will need reliable internet access and a quiet space to engage in the virtual small group breakouts.

Note: If needed for COVID-19 safety, this program may have to pivot to a live webinar format only.
