This will be followed by a webcast at 11:30 ET on how technology is being adopted in long-term care, presented by the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing's Gregory Alexander, Ph.D. Day one will wrap up with a session on wound care, led by Jeffrey M. Levine, M.D., CMD, AGSF.

Tomorrow, attendees can learn where operators are finding capital by tuning in to a presentation featuring Beth Burnham Mace, chief economist at the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry, at 11 a.m. ET. A session on survey and re-survey preparation will cap the event.

A first-of-its-kind event, the Online Expo continues to set the pace by offering premium benefits, unbeatable value and ultimate convenience — all you need is an Internet connection to boost your knowledge and expand your professional network.
