The 48th Annual Convocation and Exposition of the American College of Health Care Administrators takes place Saturday through Wednesday in Las Vegas. Regulatory, payment, management and marketing issues will be among those highlighted during the 49 educational sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 20.5 continuing education units/contact hours.
All of the usual topics of long-term care leadership and caregiving will be covered deftly and in-depth, but next week's annual meeting of the American College of Health Care Administrators will be remarkable for something else: the group's 50th anniversary. Veteran reporter and publishing icon Rona Barrett will deliver a "Nothing but the truth" keynote address Saturday afternoon, while former Dallas Cowboys player Everson Walls will headline Monday afternoon with "Putting your team first."
