Far and away, the most pleasant conference experience I have had was in Anaheim, CA, last week, where NADONA held its annual conference. That is because of the Disney experience, and the fact it brings both customer service and attending conferences into focus.
The Regional Geriatrics Medical Conference of the Year is being held through Sunday at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Lake Buena Vista, FL. Jointly sponsored by the American Medical Directors Association and local chapters of AMDA, ACHCA, NADONA and the Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association, the conference features nearly two dozen educational sessions. Major geriatric diseases, illnesses and risks found in nursing home and assisted living residents will be targeted.
