The Pioneer Network will host the “only national conference devoted solely to culture change” in long-term care from Sunday through Wednesday in Indianapolis. The group's 10th annual conference, entitled “Meeting at the Crossroads,” will feature numerous discussions on personalizing eldercare models and empowering long-term care workers.

Plenary session speakers will include Kathy Greenlee, U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging (Monday evening) and Pioneer Executive Director Bonnie Kantor and Board President Megan Hannan (Tuesday evening). Tuesday's luncheon session will, in part, honor Karen C. Schoeneman, MPA, of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a founding member of the Pioneer movement. The conference will take place at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.
